Enterprise Committee (ECs) provide CTSA Program hub members the opportunity to engage and connect across the national consortium. The ECs advance the field of translational science through open discussions, project planning and metric assessment. CLIC coordinates the administrative framework for these strategic, project driven groups. Participation in these groups also affords CTSA Program hubs connection to Working Groups (WGs) that collaborate on white papers, workshops, consensus on harmonization across CTSA Program hubs and accessing new collaborations across multi-disciplinary sectors. CTSA hubs should appoint a voting member to an EC buy designating them on their respective hub page on the CLIC website. The voting member may be the PI at the hub if they choose. Additional representation by the hub on each EC call is at the discretion of the hub. ECs are lead by an elected Lead Team by the voting members of the EC. Each EC can have up to 2 associated WGs and each WG is charged with EC-related, short-term deliverables. A full description of structure and governance is available in the Guidance for CTSA Program Groups. The current structure of the CTSA Program includes 5 ECs, which align with the strategic goals defined by NCATS Advisory Council Working Group (ACWG), in response to the 2016 IOM report. ECs were previously known as Domain Task Forces.
A variety of CTSA Program Groups were established to execute the recommendations of the NCATS Advisory Council Working Group on the IOM Report on the CTSA Program.
Interested parties are required to propose and deliver well-defined projects or deliverables that fill identified translational gaps and/or further the CTSA Program objectives in high priority areas in clinical and translational science. Based upon availability, there will be three (3) application submission rounds annually.
