We're taking the work out of workshops by going 100% virtual, allowing access from anywhere!

Enhancing Collaboration: Fostering An Evidence-Based Approach to Improving CTSA Network Capacity

Date: February 26-27, 2019 Time: 11:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. EST

Registration now open!

  • Standard registration ($100) will end February 17, 2019
  • Late registration ($250) will end February 24, 2019
  • The sooner you register, the better - To encourage participation from a wide range of CTSAs, we will reimburse the registration cost for the first registrant from each CTSA hub.

The Creative Scientist Workshop is not a standard conference. The facilitated workshop format employs a creative problem-solving approach now being used by NSF, NIH and NCATS to catalyze scientific innovation. As a participant, you will:

  • Learn state-of-the-art frameworks and approaches from throughout the CTSA network
  • Share your own experiences and ideas
  • Form new collaborative teams around promising, innovative projects and proposals
  • Advance the evaluation and dissemination of best practices in collaboration

This year we are taking the bold step of going 100% virtual, so you can attend from anywhere. Using a suite of videoconferencing and collaboration tools, we will keep the best of workshops (including stimulating talks, small-group interactions, and the opportunity to 'chat' and catch up with other attendees). We will get rid of the need to spend large amounts of time and money on transportation and lodging, and reduce the carbon footprint of the workshop.
