CTSA Program Collaborative Innovation Award (CCIA)

January 23, 2020

Notice of Change to Award Budget and Removal of Prior Approval Requirement: Application budgets need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project and are limited to no more than $750,000/year in direct costs excluding consortium/contractual F&A costs. Any application that proposes more than $750,000/year in direct costs excluding consortium/contractual F&A costs for any budget period will be withdrawn prior to review and without consideration of funding.

The Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program Collaborative Innovation Award (CCIA) supports collaborative research activities that develop innovative solutions that will improve the efficiency, quality and impact of turning laboratory, clinic and community observations into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public.  This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support investigators from three or more CTSA Program hub institutions (see below under Eligible Individuals) to either: 1) form new collaborations, or to 2) significantly expand the scientific scope of existing collaborations, or to 3) engage new collaborators in pre-existing collaborations to solve a translational science problem no one hub can solve alone, or disseminate a solution to a translational science problem developed at one hub to other hubs, in so doing testing its robustness to different hub environments and structures and adapting it for further dissemination within outside the CTSA Program consortium if appropriate.
