Statement on the Joint Action 3 Prolongation
EUnetHTA Joint Action 3 has received official approval from Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) for an extension of an additional 12 months without additional funding. This prolongation is meant to allow the finalisation of outstanding deliverables and, where possible, further prepare for a future European HTA system.
The Executive Board is currently in the process of assessing and prioritising activities during these additional 12 months. Availability of budget and contractual obligations, such as outstanding deliverables, are primary factors that will inform such a decision. With the prolongation, EUnetHTA Joint Action 3 will now officially end in May 2021. All beneficiaries will receive a formal information piece on the prolongation before the extension year commences.
