DRIVE – Development of Robust and Innovative Vaccine Effectiveness
Increasing understanding of influenza vaccine effectiveness in Europe
DRIVE is a public private partnership that advances European cooperation in influenza vaccine effectiveness studies. It seeks to establish a sufficiently sized network for robust, high quality, brand-specific effectiveness estimates for all influenza vaccines used in the EU each season. The data generated through DRIVE is expected to increase the understanding of influenza vaccine effectiveness, lead to enhanced monitoring of influenza vaccine performance by public health institutes and allow manufacturers to fulfil regulatory requirements. DRIVE also aims to develop a sustainable and transparent governance model for public private partnerships.
