After a successful completion of the project phase (2006-2008), the EUnetHTA Collaboration partnership of 25 organisations are now joining forces with other partners in Member States and the Commission to implement the results of the EUnetHTA project and the Pharmaceutical Forum through a Joint Action on HTA.
This book has been produced as a collaboration between the EUnetHTA Project and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies with the aim of reviewing the relationship between HTA and policy-making from different perspectives, with a special focus on Europe.
The new National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) is set to start operations 1 January 2009, following the merger of the National Public Health Institute (KTL) and the National Research and Development Centre for Welfare and Health (STAKES).
Following its initiative to establish a dialogue and working relationship with the HTA stakeholders which was manifested through several of EUnetHTA activities, EUnetHTA held a stakeholder meeting on June 13, 2008, in Rome, Italy.
EUnetHTA invites the EUnetHTA Collaborating Partners and parties external to EUnetHTA to send their comments and suggestions on the proposal for the future European HTA Collaboration - EUnetHTA Collaboration Years 2009+.
