1 1 National Research Frameworks: Application to Transportation David L. Huft SDDOT Research Program Manager July 25, 2011

2 Transportation Research Program Administration Int’l Scan  Sweden  Netherlands  European Commission  France  Japan  South Korea 2

3 3 Some Important Findings from the TRPA International Scan Agenda Setting  Transportation research is directly related to national economic growth and competitiveness in every country visited  Strategic and policy driven agendas for transportation research are the standard  National research agendas had topics similar to US and addressed them by cross-ministerial R&D activities Collaboration  Transportation research partnerships and joint research efforts are essential, ubiquitous, and actively promoted  Research institutes are an important vehicle for exercising transportation partnerships and collaborations

4 4 Work Task “The study will consider whether and how experience in the development of strategic research frameworks in the transportation sector internationally non-transportation sectors in the US can be applied to surface transportation research in the US.” Internationally  Europe  Asia  Multi-National & National US Non-Transportation  Agriculture  Defense  Energy  Health  Astronomy  Other Industries

5 5 Work Task The Committee will:  identify and assess promising models and frameworks for transportation research, development, & deployment (RD&D) in other nations;  identify and assess US examples of national RD&D strategic planning in sectors outside of transportation;  describe and evaluate potential frameworks and institutional models for the US for transportation RD&D, including agenda-setting, coordination, partnerships, and knowledge creation and application.

6 6 Some Emerging Study Themes (with much work left to do)  What is a research framework?  How broad is transportation research?  Where does transportation research fit in the national research picture?  Long-Term Research  Research Agenda Setting By whom? For whom? How used?  Collaboration & Partnership Models  Evaluation & Assessment (before & after)  What can fit the US?
