Dear Ms Bistrup,
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Proposal for EUnetHTA Collaboration 2009+.
EuropaBio is the European Association for Bioindustries, solely and uniquely bringing together bioscience companies from all fields of research and development, testing, manufacturing and distribution of biotechnology products. It has 84 corporate members operating worldwide, 8 associate members, 6 BioRegions and 25 national biotechnology associations representing some 1800 small and medium sized enterprises involved in research. Its mission is to promote an innovative and dynamic biotechnology-based industry in Europe.
Our successful positioning as a single entry point for reaching Europe’s biotech industry has seen us invited by the European Commission to be a Member of the High Level Pharmaceutical Forum, and to participate in its Working Group on Relative Effectiveness. We were also involved and highly supportive of initiatives on HTA undertaken within the frame of HTAi Society.
