Work Package 8 (WP8) will work on the applicability and relevance of the INTEGRATE-HTA products for broader application.

After the methods of the project have been applied to the case study and subsequently revised, the WP8 will send them out to external international experts and potential key-users for comment.

The aim is to obtain feedback from them on the applicability and relevance of the concepts and methods developed for the assessment of other complex technologies and to initiate and maintain a conceptual and methodological discussion in the pertinent national and international HTA-communities.
