    • WP1: Project management and administration
  • Four 'vertical' WPs targeting the specific scientific objectives and methodological developments:
    • WP2: Framework for pharmacoepidemiology (PE) studies
    • WP3: Methods for signal detection
    • WP4: New methods for data collection from consumers
    • WP5: Benefit-risk integration and representation
  • Two 'horizontal' WPs concerned with the communication, validation and integration of the scientific work into an integrated and cohesive European activity:
    • WP6: Replication studies
    • WP7: Training and communication
