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 of 20 participants to ensure effective interaction.

Why Participate:

  1. Use this unstructured meeting to meet new potential collaborators across the Georgia CTSA
  2. Cultivate ideas and make productive connections with investigators with similar interests.
  3. Utilize sessions as a catalyst for future collaborations and research opportunities.
