The project "EuroScan" started.
The idea: Let's get aware of innovation approaching the health care sector.
The project: A working group of public agencies from Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Canada and Switzerland started to work together on identification of emerging and new healthcare technologies.
This working group became the EuroScan International Network in 1999.
The network acquired legal status in 2017, becoming EuroScan International Network e. V., a not-for-proﬁt scientific association registered in Germany connecting public agencies, scientific organisations and individuals across all continents.
EuroScan has been and aims to remain the main global forum for sharing and developing of methods for early identiﬁcation and pre-assessment of emerging, new, and obsolete health technologies.
Over the years EuroScan becomes more and more a worldwide network. To better reflect the increased global participation achieved so far EuroScan created a new brand name in 2020. international HealthTechScan (i-HTS).
