ISPOR Europe 2022Lawrenceville, NJ, USA—October 4, 2022—ISPOR—The Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research announced today its plenary sessions and speakers for its ISPOR Europe 2022 conference. The conference will be held 6-9 November in Vienna, Austria and focused on the theme, “Collaborating Across Borders: Building and Using Evidence to Enable Access.” The conference theme is especially timely, as the new Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Regulation in the European Union has spurred conversations about how different countries, regions, or even cities, can work together in a variety of outcomes research methods. Conference registration options include in-person as well as virtual attendance.

Plenary sessions and speakers for the conference are outlined below. Speakers listed are confirmed with additional speakers added to the online program as they are confirmed.

Plenary 1—Monday, 7 November:
The Convergence of HTA and Regulation: A New HTA Reality and Collaboration with Regulatory Agencies

  • Moderator: Rui Santos Ivo; INFARMED; Lisbon, Portugal
  • Marcus Guardian, MBA; EUnetHTA; Diemen, Netherlands


    Plenary 2—Tuesday, 8 November:
    Patient-Centered Research in the Real World: Possible Across Borders?

    Innovative Methods for Integrating Data Across Outcomes and Borders
    The volume, granularity, and heterogeneity of real-world evidence have been growing exponentially as technology platforms provided new opportunities to access, link, and integrate these data and use them for outcomes research and regulatory purposes.
