TRANSVAC-DS project further builds on the outstanding success of EC-funded projects:TRANSVAC1 and TRANSVAC2 and proposes the establishment of a truly sustainable European vaccine infrastructure, which will build upon the lessons learned, activities and achievements of the TRANSVAC1/2 projects. Two infrastructure projects -TRANSVAC1 and TRANSVAC2- have been funded by the European Commission which -through the provision of state-of-the-art scientific-technical vaccine development services, technical training, and innovative vaccine research and development- have provided very significant support to European vaccine researchers and developers. Support has been, and is being provided to the development of human and veterinary prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines. The twenty-five partners in the TRANSVAC-DS consortium that will contribute to the outcome of the project represent ten EU Member States and Associated Countries and include leading organisations from the European vaccine R&D field. The main output of TRANSVAC-DS will be a conceptual design report that will describe in detail the maturity of the concept and be the basis for the establishment of a permanent and sustainable vaccine infrastructure of direct relevance to and benefit for Europe and further afield. As part of the design report, a five-year business plan will be delivered together with an implementation plan that will guide the further establishment of a sustainable European vaccine infrastructure.
