The European Network in Health Technology Assessment (EUnetHTA) aims to implement effective and sustainable collaboration in health technology assessment to achieve added value at European, national and regional level. The project is being carried out by a consortium of 81 partners from 29 countries led by the Dutch National Institute of Health (Zorginstituut Nederland).


Funding source: European Commission, through the 3rd Health Programme, and own resources

Project duration: 4 years (2016-2020)


The overall objective of the EUnetHTA JA 3 project is to increase the use, quality and efficiency of European HTA reporting collaborations to underpin evidence-based choice/decision making in health care and health technologies and to support the re-use of HTA reports at regional or national level.

Specific objectives

JA3’s strategic objectives are:

  • To develop a voluntary and sustainable European collaboration on HTA based on a model that aims to support Member States in obtaining relevant, objective, reliable, timely and comparable information;
  • Decentralisation of collaborative HTA report production, including those produced through the rapid methodology and, finalisation of methodologies and information sharing issues as a means to support collaboration within the network post 2020.
