Strengthening links between NICE and the AHSN Network


Following the first knowledge exchange joint event in July, NICE and the AHSN Network are running a deep-dive workshop in early November. This meeting is called NICE META Tool deep-dive for AHSNs and is open to all AHSN colleagues. It will be hosted by NICE.

The purpose of this virtual workshop is for NICE to provide AHSN colleagues with:

  • An introduction to the META Tool
  • A demonstration of the META Tool
  • A discussion around future developments, and Q&As to finish.

The META tool is an online service that helps medical technology developers optimise their development plans for their medical technology.

This ongoing work will be split across two sessions:

Part 1: Thursday, 5 November 10:00am to 12pm - an intro to META, a demo of the tool and a Q&A, and be open to all AHSN colleagues. You can register here.

Part 2: Thursday, 26 November 2pm to 3:30pmthis is a shorter session focussed on the META business model, open to commercial directors (or others in AHSNs who this would be relevant to), and will be more of a workshop exploring different options. Register for this session here.

A more detailed agenda will be provided closer to the time.

Please note, if you wish to attend, it is important you register, as everyone who registers is sent an individual password to enter the meeting.  A privacy note is included in the registration process, but the session is also being recorded.

We look forward to welcoming you all on 5 November.
