Spain's Instituto de Salud Carlos III, responsible for some of the country's leading health technology assessment (HTA) activity, has issued a call for project proposals. The initiative aims to "use existing data to assess the efficacy, accessibility, quality and appropriate usage of medical technologies that pose questions that are relevant to the Spanish healthcare system (SNS)". The year-long HTA projects will receive funding of up to Euros30,000 ($36,500) each, from the current year's budget of the national 2004-07 I+D+I (R&D) programme. Details of the tender are published in the Boletin Oficial del Estado (www.boe.es) of September 10.
