Blue Sky Groups
What is a Blue Sky Group?
Blue Sky Groups are convened to discuss common research areas and identify potential areas of collaboration. These groups meet once to discuss a broad topic, and then future meetings are organized based on interests and potential outcomes. Due to the format of these sessions, space is limited to a maximum 20 participants to ensure effective interaction.
- Use this unstructured meeting to meet new potential collaborators across the Georgia CTSA
- Cultivate ideas and make productive connections with investigators with similar interest.
- Utilize session as a catalyst for future collaborations and research opportunities.
"Lots of great ideas and opportunities and at the end an action plan!"

"Great way to meet others in the area. Events like this create collaboration in a field that requires multidisciplinary partnerships."
