  • Providing the CTSA Program consortium with evaluation expertise in support of the development, implementation and utilization of the Common Metrics.

  • Exploring and developing cross-hub collaborations on topics of relevance to translational science evaluation.

  • Providing resources and data about the practices and policies of CTSA Program evaluations through goal-oriented workgroups and topically oriented research groups.
