The full agenda of the DRIVE webinar


The DRIVE project (Development of Robust and Innovative Vaccine Effectiveness) started in July 2017 in the framework of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI).

DRIVE aims to establish a European platform for studying brand-specific influenza vaccine effectiveness (IVE) and to develop a governance model for scientifically independent, robust and transparent IVE studies in a public-private partnership.

DRIVE organised its first Annual Forum in September 2018 in Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Rome to discuss with different stakeholders the DRIVE governance model, the lessons learnt from the pilot season 2017/18 and the best ways to communicate about Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness results. The Forum was attended by 34 stakeholder representatives, including ECDC and EMA.
