A joint assessment is a structured information for rapid or full/comprehensive HTAs which is the output of joint production in which 2 or more countries and/or organisations work together to prepare shared products or agreed outcomes (Based on definitions from the HTA Network Strategy (page 24) and the EUnetHTA Recommendations (page 6, footnote 8))

As of March 2016, EUnetHTA has finalised 20 joint assessments: 2 joint assessments during EUnetHTA Project (2006-2008), 3 joint assessments during EUnetHTA JA (2010-2012) and 15 joint assessments during EUnetHTA JA2 (2012-2015).
