Focus on knowledge creation

Without ideas there is nothing to manage

ADVANCE_currentProjectsLeading organisations have joined forces to launch a unique project that will pave the way for a pan-European framework for rapidly assessing and communicating the benefits and risks of vaccines. Such a framework would make it easier for regulators and public health authorities to make fast, more informed decisions regarding vaccination strategies, and help to maintain public confidence in immunisation, particularly when questions are raised about the safety of specific vaccines.
The five-year, €10.7 million ADVANCE (‘Accelerated development of vaccine benefit-risk collaboration in Europe’) project is supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and brings together the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the European Medicines Agency (EMA), as well as vaccine manufacturers, national public health and regulatory bodies, academic experts, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). ADVANCE is co-coordinated by the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands, the University of Basel / University Children’s Hospital Basel in Switzerland, GSK Vaccines (coordinating the vaccine manufacturers in the project) in Belgium, and Synapse Research Management Partners (Project Management) in Spain.
