This consultation will take place between 16 April and 13 May 2013.
Objective of the public consultation
The aim of this consultation is to obtain feedback on the policy that steers the utilization of the HTA Core Model and information produced using the Model.
The HTA Core Model is a methodological framework developed by EUnetHTA to promote shared production and utilization of HTA information. An ‘Online Tool and Service’ has also been developed to assist the use of the Model, and it is currently available to EUnetHTA member organizations at www.corehta.info. The PDF versions of the Model are available freely to anyone here.
Core HTA information refers to any HTA information produced using the Model and published through the ‘Online Tool and Service’. The information is published as “collections”, which are freely available. Two pilot projects resulting in core HTA collections were published in January 2013 here.
- Policy on HTA Core Model and core HTA information, version 1.0
