The HTA Programme commissions research in three different ways: through the commissioned funding stream which advertises calls for research proposals that address specific topics, by advertising special calls for research proposals that address themed areas, and by funding HTA clinical evaluation and trials studies that are proposed directly by researchers. If you are unsure about which programme to contact find out more here. The HTA Programme has worked with Cancer Research UK to produce guidance to help clarify some of the differences between the programmes in relation to the cancer research that they fund. For further information please visit the NETSCC website.
