With best wishes for a productive and successful 2014, EUnetHTA is happy to share the following brief review of main achievements in the JA2 first year. We hope to see you in Rome on October 30-31 2014 to share the results of Year 2 in person at the EUnetHTA conference HTA 2.0 Europe – Teaming up for Value!
SEED - the Shaping European Early Dialogues Consortium – led by the French Haute Autorité de Santé and financed by a European Commission call for tender - was set up to explore various scenarios for conducting early dialogues (EDs) between health technology assessors and healthcare product developers during the development phase of medicinal products and medical devices.
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. The Stakeholder Forum's composition aims at ensuring broad and balanced representation of stakeholder interests.
Under "contact us", you will find a list of all Stakeholder members with an indication of which group they belong to in parenthesis.
Organisations representing interests of four stakeholder groups – patients/consumers, industry, payers (statutory health insurance) and healthcare providers can participate via the EUnetHTA Stakeholder Forum.
Public Consultations are held regularly as a form of soliciting public input on the draft documents produced by EUnetHTA within the framework of implementing the EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 grant agreement and 3-year EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 Work Plan.
Announcements of the public consultations are made in the "News" section of this website.
