NITC Funds $926K in the Newest Slate of Research on Mobility for Strong Communities
The National Institute for Transportation & Communities (NITC) research consortium, led by Portland State University, has awarded $926,000 in total funding for eleven research projects spanning five universities.
The General Research grant is NITC's flagship grant. Annually, we fund general research through a competitive, peer-reviewed RFP process for projects ($30,000 - $150,000) consistent with our theme of improving the mobility of people and goods to build strong communities.
Four of these new projects involve multi-university collaboration, and seven are advancing the transportation knowledge base by building upon an existing body of research. The new group of projects will help lead the deployment of innovative new technologies and practices to improve the safety and performance of transportation systems:

GET YOUR RESEARCH FUNDED THROUGH NITC
The RFP for the General Research grant cycle opens in the spring of each year. The next NITC funding opportunity is our Small Starts grant which opens on August 1, 2018 (proposals due September 5, 2018). This grant programs assists researchers who are interested in transportation but have not yet had an opportunity to undertake a small project. Faculty members and research faculty that are eligible to serve as Principal Investigators (PIs) are located at Portland State University, Oregon Institute of Technology, University of Arizona, University of Oregon, University of Utah, or University of Texas at Arlington.
