VESRA Project

Systematic Reviews Of Scientific Evidence On Vaccines And Capacity Building Activities for the EU Commission’s Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA).

This funded project supports the activities of the EU/EEA National Immunisation Technical Advisory Groups’ (NITAGs) decision-making on national vaccination programmes, including COVID-19 vaccines. The consortium includes Cochrane Germany, Cochrane Austria, Cochrane Ireland, RKI and PWC.

Cochrane Ireland, through the University of Galway, was awarded €410,000 over 4 years to lead on this project.

Dr Petek Eylül Taneri has been appointed the Postdoctoral Researcher on the project which will provide a substantial opportunity to inform the decision-making of EU/EEA NITAGs and affiliated committees on recommendations for the vaccination programme.
