CTU Bern


CTU Bern becomes national coordinator of the European project VACCELERATE

VACCELERATE is a network created for the coordination & execution of COVID-19 vaccine Trials in Europe, currently involving 214 clinical trial sites in 30 countries.


The project plans to address key questions of interest outside the big registration trials, such as vaccine efficacy in virus variants, trials in children, pregnant women, immunocompromised patients, trials on combination of different vaccines and others. It will promote collaborations and harmonization in vaccine trials by mapping new clinical trial sites & laboratories with standardized methods, quality management or harmonization of data acquisition among sites. The project plans to facilitate open data exchange for valid data analysis and Set-up of volunteer registries for vaccine trials. Thus, VACCELERATE would allow fast and efficient recruitment all across Europe.
