The objective is to provide a training opportunity for unexperienced staff and a discussion forum for experienced personnel on specific COVID-19 vaccine-related questions. Next to the above-mentioned topics the invited speakers will cover GMP issues, microbiological and viral safety aspects, QC and environmental monitoring aspects as well as important regulatory issues and framework.


Vaccine development and manufacturing are crucial for control of the COVID-19 pandemic. Platform technologies have enabled rapid development of vaccines with demonstrated efficacy against COVID-19. However, large-scale manufacturing is prerequisite for meeting the global demand. This implies upscaling of  manufacturing, meeting GMP requirements and switching of manufacturing in existing facilities. The workshop organized by PEI and the ECA Foundation will address These topics and provide an overview on GMP for vaccines and practical insights from experts in the field.


This workshop is aimed at all persons involved in vaccine licensing and production:
  • GMP compliance in manufacturing
  • The necessary room and technical requirements
  • Upscaling of manufacturing
  • Upstream and Downstream
  • Inspections and audits
  • Quality control, quality assurance and release issues

Technical Requirements

For our Live Online Training Courses and Webinars, we use Cisco WebEx, one of the leading suppliers of online meetings.
At http://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html you can check if your System meets the necessary requirements for the participation at a WebEx meeting and at the same time install the necessary plug-in. Please just enter your name and e-mail address for the test. If the installation is not possible because of your rights for the computer system, please contact your IT department. WebEx is a standard nowadays and the necessary installation is fast and easy.
