May, 2015 – BIOVIA ScienceCloud Wins Bio-IT World “Best Practices” Award BIOVIA ScienceCloud, as used by the European Lead Factory (ELF) project of the Innovative Medicines Initiative, has been awarded a BioIT World “Best Practices” Award in the Knowledge Management category. The ELF is a pan-European drug discovery consortium consisting of seven pharmaceutical companies and thirteen academic organizations, which faced a significant challenge: How do you give external researchers access to screening compounds that are normally locked behind company firewalls, while also assuring the compound owners that their intellectual property (IP) is secure? The ELF addressed this challenge by implementing the BIOVIA ScienceCloud information management and collaboration workspace, which the Bio-IT World judges have appraised to be “the only platform in its class.”
