• The Brighton Collaboration was created in 2000 with the goal of building trust in the safety of vaccines via rigorous science.

• The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the Brighton Collaboration launched the Safety Platform for Emergency vACcines (SPEAC) Project on May 28, 2020.

• SPEAC aims to support the emerging CEPI portfolio by creating practical solutions for harmonized safety assessment of CEPI vaccines by working:

o To enhance vaccine safety assessment across CEPI development programs.

o To harmonize vaccine safety monitoring during CEPI preclinical and clinical trials.

o To provide a continuous improvement framework for the SPEAC program.
