Aligned to understand and manage the COVID-19 pandemic
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Commission has funded several cohort-based projects.
We at ENDVOC, will participate and engage with similar initiatives in regular joint meetings with the leaders
of these consortia to update and align each other’s activities.
Summary: Study of VOC impact on risk and protective factors in different risk, gender and age groups in EU and Africa. a) Total 9 cohorts: targeted participant cohorts, general population cohorts, paediatric cohorts b) Genomic virological surveillance c) immunological surveillance d) data science / integration.
Countries: 14 partners from 7 countries – Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Ethiopia, South Africa
Aims: To identify VOC through genomic sequencing & surveillance in different cohorts, to evaluate the impact of VOCs on vaccine induced humoral and cellular resposnses in different populations,identifying immune correlates of protection against VOC through development of algorithms predicting the impact of VOCs on the efficacy of vaccines, informing future vaccine strategy and next generation vaccines.
