We run seminars and workshops specifically aimed at those in the pharmaceutical, medical technology or cell and gene therapy sectors.

The foundation seminars:

  • assume no prior knowledge
  • introduce the principles of health technology assessment
  • show how we apply those principals when evaluating health technologies
  • give an overview of our different programmes.

The advanced workshops:

  • assume knowledge of the topics covered in the foundation seminar
  • develop practical skills to help you engage with a specific programme
  • help you build health technology assessment into your early product development plans
  • allow you to interact with key programme experts at NICE.

We can consider developing bespoke seminars to meet your needs. These can be delivered at our offices or at a location convenient to your audience. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We also participate in external seminars and workshops, and are often invited to speak and attend a number of events. These are listed on the speaking engagements tab.
