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+.
Currently the Steering Committee of the EUnetHTA project is preparing a proposal for the future European HTA Collaboration (ie, beyond the project time frame, 2006-2008) that includes the vision, mission, aims and values of the future EUnetHTA Collaboration, including its key functions.
The first preliminary results from Work Package 4 (WP4, Core HTA), WP5 (Adapting HTAs to new settings), and WP7 (monitoring new technologies and prioritisation of HTA) were presented on June 17 during a pre-conference workshop “EUnetHTA – transnational methodological developments” organised by EUnetHTA at the annual international HTAi conference in Barcelona.
The first EUnetHTA Core Model for HTA will be made public on the 17th of June at the Annual Meeting of HTAi in Barcelona. Simultaneously, the first practical application of the model - the core HTA on drug eluting stents - will be made public. Both documents are still drafts and subject to validation, review and refinement.
