The European network for Health Technology Assessment was established to create a network for HTA across Europe, developing a framework (HTA Core ModelĀ®) by which a technology (for example a new medicine) can be assessed. It facilitates efficient use of resources, creating a sustainable system of knowledge, and promoting good practice in HTA methods and processes. The network connects public national HTA bodies, research institutions and health ministries, to exchange information and to support policy decisions by member states.
