European Network for Health Technology Assessment (EUnetHTA) – Joint Action 3

JA-01-2015 EUnetHTA
Joint Action 3

01/06/2016 – 31/05/2020

About the project

There were two previous joint actions concerning health technology assessment, namely EUnetHTA Joint Action 1 (2006-2009) and EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 (2012-2015). As also noted in the 2015 annual workplan of the Health Programme, EUnetHTA JA3 was launched in 2016 and expected to last for 4 years. From Hungary, the Ministry of Human Resources nominated two institutes to participate, one of them is Semmelweis University (SU), the other one is the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition (NIPN). The NIPN also participated in earlier JAs through its Department of Health Technology Assessments. SU is one of the newcoming participants of EUnetHTA.
The general aim of EUnetHTA is to facilitate the use, quality and efficiency of HTA reports on European level. The HTA joint actions were needed to make a contribution for evidence-based, sustainable and equitable decisions in health care and health technologies, and to enhance the production of national and regional HTA reports and other related activites, while also preventing parallel workflows. In order to achieve all of the above, the specific goal of EUnetHTA is to create the sustainable network of health technology assessment, which can operate beyond the 2020 completion of the joint action.

EUnetHTA JA3 comprises of the following work packages:

  • WP1 Coordination (lead: ZIN, The Netherlands)
  • WP2 Dissemination (lead: ISCIII, Spain)
  • WP3 Evaluation (lead: TLV, Sweden)
  • WP4 Joint Production (lead: NIPHNO, Norway)
  • WP5 Evidence generation (lead: HAS, France)
  • WP6 Quality Management (lead: IQWiG, Germany)
  • WP7 National Implementation and Impact (lead: NICE, UK).

Semmelweis University has signed up to carry out tasks for WP2, WP4, WP6 and WP7.
