The Network Collaborator Request is designed to connect you with one or more partner networks or Collaborative Research Groups (CRGs) to collaborate on study planning and implementation, including site identification for recruitment/enrollment, investigator expertise, and patient/participant engagement expertise.
The Submission and Review Process
Before submitting a request, it is important to understand what type of Network Collaboration you are seeking. Consider the details of your request and your short- and long-term needs. Do you need investigator expertise for proposal or site budget development? Are you interested in identifying sites and investigators to participate in your study? When submitting the PCORnet Front Door Request Form, you will be asked to also complete a PCORnet Informational Slide Presentation providing details of your project and collaboration needs.
Following an administrative review by the Front Door, your request will be shared with applicable partner networks and CRGs. Responses from interested collaborators will be provided after two weeks to initiate conversations. Use the downloadable Informational Slide Template and Request Form Template to preview the Front Door request questions and compile your information ahead of time.
