Expression of Interest

HTAi’s mission is to promote the development, understanding and use of HTA around the world as a means of fostering innovation and effective use of resources in health care. The Annual Meeting is an opportunity for HTA users and producers to share knowledge and strengthen networks, and for a host organisation to showcase its international leadership in HTA.

The 2017 Annual Meeting was held in Rome, Italy (Europe) and supported by SiHTA. In 2018, the Annual Meeting crossed the Atlantic and, with the support of the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Healthcare (CADTH), was hosted in Vancouver, Canada. For 2019, the HTAi Annual Meeting will be in Cologne, Germany (Europe) with the support of the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) and the German Institute for Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI). For HTAi 2020, the Annual Meeting will move to the Asia-Pacific region and will be hosted in Beijing, China with the support of the China National Health Development Research Center (CNHDRC) and Fudan University.

The detailed proposals for the HTAi 2021 Annual Meeting are currently under review, worldwide applications will be accepted for HTAi 2022. The rotation will continue on that basis, alternating on applications from Europe one year and world wide applications the next.

Expressions of Interest are evaluated by the HTAi Annual Meeting Committee, who will provide recommendations to the HTAi Board based on the criteria detailed in the Application Guide.

The application process is conducted in two steps. Once the EoI process is completed, a second Detailed Proposal will be requested from appropriate organisational hosts. Timelines will be provided each year as they are updated and become available.
Timelines for the 2022 application process will be posted at the beginning of 2019.
