As part of its Annual Forum, DRIVE will host a high-level Public Roundtable on 8 June from 14.00-15.30 CET.

Project DRIVE is a 5-year project funded under the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) seeking to establish a sustainable study platform based on a sufficiently sized network to provide robust, high quality, brand-specific effectiveness estimates for all influenza vaccines used in the EU each season. In DRIVE, data from several independently operating national or regional study sites is analysed jointly to increase sample size for brand-specific influenza vaccine effectiveness estimates and account for EU diversity in vaccination recommendations and vaccines composition. Through a public-private partnership, DRIVE is expected to lead to enhanced dialogue between European stakeholders and thus facilitate the monitoring of influenza vaccine performance by public health institutes and allow manufacturers to fulfil the requirements of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
