The EUnetHTA Plenary Assembly has approved the EUnetHTA JA2 3-year Work Plan. The document lays out details and timelines of the activities planned in each of the eight Work Packages of the EUnetHTA JA2 (2012-2015).
The plan may be adjusted prospectively at the end of each of the project year.
The policy for the HTA Core Model and core HTA information - produced earlier within EUnetHTA Joint Action 2010-2012 - will be reviewed by WP8 of EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 during spring 2013. We are happy to announce that as of today, the policy is available for public feedback, which will be used in the review process to develop the next version.
In 2004, the European Commission and Council of Ministers targeted Health Technology Assessment (HTA) as “a political priority”, recognising “(…)an urgent need for establishing a sustainable European network on HTA”.
EUnetHTA was established to create an effective and sustainable network for HTA across Europe – we work together to help developing reliable, timely, transparent and transferable information to contribute to HTAs in European countries.
EUnetHTA is a network of government appointed organisations (from EU Member States, EEA and Accession countries) and a large number of relevant regional agencies and non-for-profit organisations that produce or contribute to HTA in Europe.
The EUnetHTA Stakeholder Forum is formed to ensure a transparent engagement with a broad range of stakeholders and is comprised of representatives from patient and healthcare consumer organisations, healthcare providers, payers (statutory health insurance) and the industry. Its composition aims at ensuring broad and balanced representation of stakeholder interests.
Organisations representing interests of four stakeholder groups – patients/consumers, industry, payers (statutory health insurance) and healthcare providers can participate via the EUnetHTA Stakeholder Forum.
