Following the session on 14th December 2020, WP7 and EFPIA partners met again virtually for the second session of the annual brainstorming. The session, hosted by project partner INSERM, was aimed at reviewing the study platform governance based on lessons learnt and preparation of the sustainability plan passed IMI’s study platform.

The meeting covered the DRIVE Study platform improvements for the coming seasons, including governance adaptations, adjustments in the way of working and communicating and the possibility of conducting additional analysis.

The meeting also offered an overview of the impact of both COVID-19 and low influenza circulation in the 20/21 season on the project, and the attendees analysed the situation and discussed on plans for the future.
