Natalion – ERA Chair project of Horizon Europe framework programme “Widening Participation and Spreading Excellence” will promote innovation excellence of Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis (LIOS).

The excellence of research and innovation will be attained by the establishment of Natural Products Research group comprising high level scientists and integrating the operations into internal and external collaboration networks. Sourcing of natural products with wide spectrum of biological activity will strongly synergize with the existing LIOS competencies in drug discovery.

As a complementary structural change, implementation and integration of LIOS Innovation hub with other LIOS support units will be performed. Operation of the hub will be focused on establishment of the institutional environment fostering innovations including training, motivation, exploitation of research results, and promoting commercialization.

The aim of Natalion will be achieved under the competent guidance of the ERA Chair holder Dr. Stefano Donadio and collaboration with company NAICONS (Italy).
