The Theoretical and Physical Chemistry Institute (TPCI/NHRF) serves as an access-site within the national research infrastructure network (INNOVATION-EL)
Innovation-el is a national research infrastructure network comprised of leading Research Institutions and Universities in Greece. Its mission is to promote scientific excellence and the development of knowledge intensive products providing open-access to top-notch research facilities to academic and industrial users. The ultimate goal of Innovation-el is to evolve to a unique regional habitat for Research, Development and Innovation activities throughout Southeastern Europe and the Mediterranean Area. TPCI serves as an access-site within Innovation-el, offering facilities for material synthesis, growth, and processing, material and device characterization through several spectroscopic methods, laser processing of materials, and clusters for computational chemistry and physics.

"RESEARCH-CREATE-INNOVATE" project : CLOUDSCREEN
The National Hellenic Research Foundation currently participates in the research project CLOUDSCREEN that aims to develop a new generation "one-stop-shop- platform (CloudScreen) for drug repositioning and repurposing in precision medicine. Combining the reasoning skills of artificial and human intelligence, the platform empowers efficacy and toxicity prediction, evaluation, and validation for the repurposed drugs.
