Research Network Opportunities, Collaborative Awards
The goal of this page is to assist the CTSA Program network with identifying collaborators and projects of interest from other CTSA Program hubs and broader external partners from academia, industry, government agencies, foundations, patient groups and other organizations. CLIC provides a range of mechanisms to support both CTSA Program hub and external collaborations, including:
- Supporting cross-network team synergy manuscripts on topics of joint interest
- Promoting un-meetings as self-organizing events to bring together potential partners
- Developing mechanisms to support a robust training network.
As an initial example, NCATS has supported several initiatives and launched Collaborative Innovation Awards designed to stimulate team-based research collaborations across the CTSA Program network. Through a variety of projects, the CTSA Program hubs strive to leverage expertise across institutions to overcome translational science roadblocks. These funded projects and dissemination of their results may provide additional opportunities for collaboration across the CTSA Program network and with external partners.

Trial Innovation Network
The Trial Innovation Network is a collaborative national network that focuses on operational innovation, excellence and collaboration.
CTSA Program Collaborative Innovation Awards
This program allows three or more CTSA hubs to work together to develop, demonstrate and disseminate innovative, experimental approaches to overcoming translational science roadblocks.
CTSA Program Collaborative Innovation Awards: Administrative Supplements
These supplements allow investigators from two or more CTSA hubs to form collaborations to implement, assess, and/or disseminate discoveries in methods, approaches, education and training in clinical and translational science.
