A joint effort to reach further

Scientists from academia and the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry, clinicians, public health agencies, patient groups, and clinical societies have come together to share knowledge on RSV and foster scientific debate to advance on the development of preventive solutions that contribute to lessen RSV disease burden.

Our ambition

PROMISE (Preparing for RSV Immunisation and Surveillance in Europe), an IMI funded project, kicked off November 1st, 2021, with the objective of taking a major leap forward in the fight against Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) in Europe and worldwide.

This initiative builds on RESCEU’s (Respiratory Syncytial Virus Consortium in Europe) achievements, another IMI project focused on generating insights into the impact of RSV on healthcare systems and society. PROMISE takes over RESCEU with the mission to continue advancing scientific knowledge on RSV to better inform public health strategies and to support the development and introduction of novel immunisations tools and therapeutics against this potentially deadly virus in the paediatric and elderly populations.

    The World Immunisation Week (WIW) campaign this year 2022 has been launched to remind us that immunisation provides an opportunity for everyone to enjoy a more fulfilling life. The WIW is organised in April every year by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to highlight the collective action needed and to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. This year the featured theme is #LongLifeforall and the PROMISE consortium joins this effort by paving the way to Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease prevention and immunisation.
