The new Vortal to offer services beyond the IRG

  1. 1. The new Vortal to offer services beyond the IRG  Since 2005, the Interest Sub-Group on Information Resources (IRG) maintains the HTAi Vortal, a selection of web resources related to HTA.  In 2011, the Vortal was renewed: the initial collection of references was divided into three sections (HTA producers and networks; selected HTA resources, Career development supporting information).  New functionalities and services were also added for the IRG workgroups, but also for other Interest Sub- Groups (ISGs). Those changes raised the need of a new governing policy.
