Public Consultations are held regularly as a form of soliciting public input on the draft documents produced by EUnetHTA within the framework of implementing the EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 grant agreement and 3-year EUnetHTA Joint Action 2 Work Plan. Announcements of the public consultations are made in the News section of this website.

Properly submitted contributions will be made public on the EUnetHTA public website within a month after the closing date of the public consultation (unless the author has explicitly opposed publication of their contribution or the contributions do not address the draft documents put forward for public consultation or contain complaints against institutions, personal accusations, irrelevant or offensive statements or material). The name of the author, his affiliation, and date of the submission’s receipt will be disclosed when the contribution is made public.

More detailed instructions are provided on the news dedicated for each specific public consultation.

The HTA Core Model has been updated in two phases by WP8 of EUnetHTA Joint Action 2. First, a major overhaul of the Model was made in 2013, resulting in version 2.0 in which most contents were updated. During 2014 the revision process continued through updating contents of the legal domain (the only domain not updated for 2.0). Further work in 2014 included a revision of the list of HTA questions (the ontology) in some domains to remove redundant overlaps and to align the questions with those used in the rapid relative effectiveness assessment (REA) model application developed within WP5.
