What is the real-world impact of our network? That is a question the Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program has been trying to answer since its inception. Over the past four years, the Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration has pitched in on that effort, knitting together several tried and trusted evaluation methods to develop a new Stakeholder-Engaged Research Impact
Measuring the impact of science; How CTSAs use the Translational Science Benefits Model to show real world benefitsJune 28, 2021
Government, non-profits, and organizations fund research with the ultimate goal of improving health and society. Yet measuring these long-term outcomes can be challenging, and research impact has traditionally been tied to quantitative productivity, like bibliometrics and grant funding, and not necessarily the broader impacts of research. For years, researchers lacked a cohesive framework to
- February 05, 2021
In a new study, the Evaluation and Continuous Improvement (ECI) team of the Georgia CTSA evaluated publications characterized as Big Splashes with immediate impact and publications with Ripple Effects over time, to understand how Georgia CTSA-supported research is ‘making waves’ that can accelerate translation. Previous systematic evaluations of the Georgia CTSA’s publication portfolio revealed a
