The European Commission has launched EXSCALATE4CoV, a project to fight the spread of COVID-19. E4C has a twofold objective: identify molecules effective against COVID-19 develop and consolidate an effective tool to counter future viral epidemics. The project is based on a platform called EXSCALATE (EXaSCale smArt pLatform Against paThogEns), currently the most powerful and efficient smart supercomputing platform in the world, developed by Dompé Farmaceutici.

Long text:
The project has been operational since the second half of February after the European Commission invited urgent tenders. The public-private consortium comprises 18 beneficiaries from seven EU countries. The Italian partners include Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, the supercomputing centre Cineca, the Lazzaro Spallanzani National Institute for Infectious Diseases as well as the project coordinator Dompé Farmaceutici S.p.A.
The project is based on a platform called EXSCALATE (EXaSCale smArt pLatform Against paThogEns), currently the most powerful and efficient smart supercomputing platform in the world, developed by Dompé Farmaceutici. The Elettra team, led by Paola Storici, will focus on the study of proteins, thus contributing to the rational design of novel molecules to be used as potential drugs and validating the virtual models generated by the EXSCALATE platform.
