Background and Purpose
Tran-SET will jointly host a webinar series with (rotating) University Transportation Centers (UTCs). Each webinar, to be conducted on a quarterly basis, will involve a (rotating) research theme relevant to Tran-SET, in alignment with the US DOT Strategic Plan for FY 2018 – 2022, and relevant to the transportation research community as a whole. Each webinar will include three presentations: (1) on a related Tran-SET -funded research project, (2) on a related external UTC-funded research project, and (3) a more practitioner-focused presentation from a state DOT or FHWA.
Each webinar will be one-hour long with an additional 15 minutes for questions.
The purpose of the webinar series is threefold: (1) to strengthen collaboration among UTCs and other research centers in the development and deployment of innovation, (2) increase coordination among UTCs and other research centers in their technology transfer activities, and (3) increase engagement in Tran-SET and other UTCs’ efforts from a wider audience. The webinar series will also provide a convenient, freely accessible informational source to researchers and practitioners alike.
