HTAcademy – Pfizer's scholarship program for up-and-coming scientists
in the field of Health Technology Assessment

From now until March 31, 2011, graduates at the start of their academic careers from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland are invited to apply for the HTAcademy scholarship. The goal of the HTAcademy is to promote the further development of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) as an important instrument for the
evaluation of healthcare technologies. The scholarship is announced once a year.
Each participating country will award a national scholarship of €5,000 – €10,000 to an applicant whose work contributes substantially to the further development and application of the HTA concept. The project proposals of the national scholarship winners will then be evaluated by a European expert committee, who will award the European prize of €40,000 to the most promising entry. Eligible candidates may come from, for example, the fields of medicine, health sciences, health economics, psychology or medical ethics. This year’s thematic focus is on the processes and methodology of HTA and the role of HTA in policy making and health system design. Further information about the HTAcademy scholarship program including application forms for download can be found at www.htacademy.eu.
