The European Vaccine Initiative (EVI), as coordinator of the TRANSVAC2 vaccine research infrastructure, and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), laying the foundation to establish a vaccinology training collaboration with the TRANSVAC2 project.
TRANSVAC2 is dedicated to accelerating and improving vaccine development, by strengthening and disseminating European vaccine expertise. As one of the support activities offered to the scientific community, TRANSVAC2 provides training courses surrounding fundamental and advanced knowledge on a wide-range of vaccine development-related topics. With this MoU, we will boost access of advanced vaccine research and development training to CEPI’s team members, thereby directly supporting CEPI´s important mission to accelerate the development of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases.
EVI welcomes this new partnership agreement with CEPI that attests to the high quality and demand of trainings and courses organised by TRANSVAC2 partners, including University of Oxford, Vaccine Formulation Institute, Wageningen University, Biomedical Primate Research Centre (BPRC), The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), Fraunhofer (IMI-Fraunhofer), University of Siena (UNISI) and EATRIS.
