Budapest, Hungary June 4, 2015 - ChemAxon, a leader in providing chemistry software solutions and consulting services for life science research, and InnoCentive, the global leader in crowdsourcing innovation solutions announce the integration of ChemAxon’s Marvin JS™, which enables convenient drawing of chemical structures and reactions/reaction mechanisms in InnoCentive’s innovation management software platform, InnoCentive@WorkTM. ChemAxon has been involved in several collaborative, open innovation initiatives in the recent years. ChemAxon tools have been foundational part of Eli Lilly's OIDD (Open Innovation Drug Discovery) initiative aiming to provide a platform for idea-sharing among the network of top global research institutions.  AstraZeneca enables research collaborations by providing a web-based open-innovation platform where chemical structures may be submitted.  Molecule characterization is provided by ChemAxon.  Similarly, ChemAxon provides core tools to support the European Lead Factory, a novel platform for innovative drug discovery, an IMI-supported public private partnership to enhance early drug discovery. InnoCentive has integrated ChemAxon’s web-based drawing tool into their SaaS-based Challenge Driven InnovationTM management software platform, InnoCentive@Work.  The tool allows users to draw chemical structures within InnoCentive@Work and save those structures to their database.  Marvin JS is a state-of-the-art chemical editor that combines the chemical knowledge of MarvinSketch with the JavaScript-based browser technology and provides a quick and easy way to insert chemical structures inline with the forum system InnoCentive has previously developed. ‘I am very excited about this partnership as crowdsourcing is becoming the next generation approach to problem solving’ - said Ferenc Csizmadia, CEO of ChemAxon. ‘We look forward to bringing more functionality as we extend our relationship with InnoCentive’ "Together with ChemAxon we have created the industry leading crowd sourcing solution for chemistry innovation.
