DISCO publication in Impact

March 3, 2017

Increasing project outreach, DISCO has worked together with an editorial team resulting in a review article in the scientific journal Impact communicating the economic, scientific and societal impact of the project.

The three page article sets off with an interview with coordinator Paul Fraser in which he describes the DISCO approach, project results, and planned activities in 2017 ensuring that the potential of these results is exploited. On the following pages the text gives a deeper insight into DISCO´s three step approach towards the aim of reducing the reliance on chemical synthesis by using plant natural products and describes the value of the project results for different stakeholders.

The article is published in the latest edition of Impact, a journal dedicated to fostering open and collaborative science. The edition was distributed in printed and digital format in January 2017 and is available open access on IngentaConnect.
