WP7 - Vaccine research and development priority‐setting framework

Description

WP7 will define tools and methods for priority‐setting and identify mechanisms to increase collaboration and cooperation in vaccine and vaccination research and research funding programmes among MS.

Objectives

This WP follows three objectives:

  • Identify a small number of vaccines based on unmet needs for specific age categories to be used as examples to develop such a framework (e.g. a paediatric, an adolescent and an adult/elderly vaccine).
  • Map existing priority setting tools used for research and develop priority-setting in view of developing a specific priority-setting framework for vaccine and vaccination research.
  • Identify sustainable mechanisms to decrease funding fragmentation and increase the potential for shared funding on common priorities.
