On 14th December 2020, WP7 and EFPIA partners met virtually in their annual brainstorm meeting. The session, hosted by project partner INSERM, revolved around DRIVE study scientific components for season 2020/21.

The discussions focused on updating statistical analysis with COVID-19 data, strategy for the coming seasons, and lessons learnt.
The meeting also offered an overview of the DRIVE platform expansion and introduced the new DRIVE study sites for season 2020-21, including the specificities and added values such as COVID-19 analysis.

The brainstorming session was fruitful and made advancement on the methdological topics and will be followed up by a discussion with ISC members. This first Brainstorming session will be followed by a second session on January 18, 2021 focused on Governance and Sustainability of the DRIVE project.
