About us


Vaccines improve the quality of life by preventing serious illnesses. They play a key role in promoting public health. Starting 1st September, 2022, we are FVR – Finnish Vaccine Research. We study the quality, safety and efficacy of vaccines with decades of experience and internationally recognized, high-quality scientific expertise. Our goal is to enable new, even safer and more effective vaccines for children and adults.

The company builds on the solid foundation of vaccine research expertise of the Tampere University’s Vaccine Research Center and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare’s (THL) vaccine research, combining the two.

We serve both the public and the private sector by offering e.g.:

  • Pre-licensure clinical vaccine trials
  • Investigations into the effectiveness and safety of vaccines already in use
  • Studies on the burden of vaccine-preventable diseases
  • Collaborative clinical research and development projects e.g. with universities
