Studies In Planning

When studies are in the “planning” phase, VA researchers and CSP experts hold planning meetings during which they jointly design the study and develop a full study protocol. Next, a scientific committee–called the Cooperative Studies Scientific Evaluation Committee–reviews and critiques the proposal, and funding is provided for only the most relevant and highest quality research.
