DRIVE WP7 and EFPIA partners will meet up again for annual brainstorming meetings. The two planned meetings are expected to take place in a virtual format in February and March, and will focus on the scientific and methodological components for DRIVE’s study in the 21/22 flu season.

The discussions will focus on the evaluation of the adjustments of the statistical analysis plan for the 2021/2022 season. The impact of confounders in DRIVE vaccine effectiveness (VE) analyses and a secondary-use framework of DRIVE’s dataset will also be discussed.

This activity has been coordinated by INSERM and P95 with the support of the project coordinator, FISABIO and EFPIA leads, and SANOFI PASTEUR. It will be attended by DRIVE WP7 experts, DRIVE’s Steering Committee and all EFPIA partners.
