IMPROVING AND ACCELERATING VACCINE DEVELOPMENT IN EUROPE

TRANSVAC: New Vaccines Faster

TRANSVAC is a collaborative infrastructure project funded by the European Commission (EC), initially under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) and currently under Horizon 2020.  The project is a joint effort of leading European groups working in the field of vaccine development, and is coordinated by the European Vaccine Initiative (EVI). TRANSVAC is designed to accelerate vaccine development by enhancing European vaccine research and training, and increase sustainability of EC vaccine projects by implementing a permanent research infrastructure for early vaccine development.

Support to development of vaccines against COVID19

“Rapid progress towards the development of potent vaccines can only happen through concerted and coordinated efforts around Europe and the world – and TRANSVAC2 is well positioned to facilitate such efforts.” - Dr. Hilde Depraetere, TRANSVAC2 Coordinator

 

To support of the global effort to accelerate the development of a vaccine against Sars-CoV-2, TRANSVAC2 launched in April 2020 a specific call for applications focused on the development of novel COVID-19 vaccines. 

 

Consequently, a variety of TRANSVAC2 services, from antigen discovery to preclinical and clinical trial support (In total 31 services), will be delivered to help eight awarded research groups from SMEs and public institutions to speed-up the COVID-19 vaccine development pipeline.

 This initiative is fully supported by the European Commission which provides, additional top-up funds worth EUR 4 millions.
