The training modules are part of a series of 14 training modules dedicated to vaccinology set up by the TRANSVAC2 consortium at leading European centres. The modules 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 will be harmonised in a way that allows a logical continuation from one topic to the other.
