In principle, models that STIKO potentially considers for its decision making, as described in section 1, can be performed by external institutions. Due to the generally high level of complexity, the high level of coordination required, and the frequent risk of intransparency, STIKO prefers commissioning its own models with close monitoring and frequent updates.. The STIKO or the relevant STIKO workgroup will work with STIKO’s executive secretariat and RKI’s Immunization Unit to define all project-specific modelling requirements, and involve other experts or project partners as needed. 

Section 1.2 focuses primarily on EM and its particularities regarding vaccinations. Section 1.3 addresses the special health economic requirements that should be taken into account in an HE on vaccinations.
