ENOVA is a science and technology “Network on Vaccine Adjuvants”, funded by COST through the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020. ENOVA is coordinated by the Vaccine Formulation Institute (UK) and brings together European experts and stakeholders working in different areas of adjuvant and vaccine R&D, including both prophylactic and therapeutic applications as well as human and veterinary vaccines. ENOVA’s members include industry, academic, and government institutions. The ultimate goals of the network are to facilitate communication and the exchange of information among its membership, to ensure that new discoveries are widely disseminated so that their potential can be of optimal benefit, to promote the best use of existing adjuvant technologies, and to encourage and support the development of novel adjuvants.

TRANSVAC: European Vaccine Research and Development Infrastructure - next cut-off date for proposal submission is on 15 August 2018
First call for training modules. Deadline 1 July 2018
June 6, 2018 2:07 PM
The f irst call for training modules has been launched, the deadline for application is 1 July 2018.
Training scientists in vaccine research and development (R&D) is crucial in order to sustain Europe’s excellence in this field. The TRANSVAC2 Consortium has set up training modules at leading European centers that can be combined to create customised international courses on vaccine R&D. Two rounds of customised training courses are planned. Participants can select topics as needed in their field of vaccine development and the timelines of the various modules are harmonized in a way that allows a logical continuation from one topic to the other.

European collaboration for developing vaccine adjuvants
We are happy to invite you to participate in our 2nd ENOVA Adjuvant Workshop. The workshop will be hosted by Dennis Christensen, SSI from 21-22 January 2018. Location is the Eigtveds pakhus (Strandgade 25G, 1401 Copenhagen, Denmark). A draft program is currently been discussed and will be shared with you shortly.
The course provides an overview of state-of-the-art adjuvant systems and addresses the preclinical and clinical development of adjuvanted vaccines. It combines interactive theoretical parts (lectures and discussion rounds) with practical parts where participants work on different thematic case studies. Invited trainers will present the various adjuvant systems, such as Aluminum salts, Oil-in-Water emulsions, Water-in-Oil emulsions, Liposomes, PLGA particles, Virosomes, QS21, TLR ligands, as well as aspects of preclinical and clinical development of adjuvanted vaccines.For the practical parts, participants will be split into smaller groups. Each group will work on one case study, facilitated by a trainer. The trainer will introduce the case study, provide background information, and explain the tasks and questions for the group work. Following this introduction, each group will work independently on their case study for a given time and will prepare a summary of the case that will be presented to all participants at the end.
