NITC releases technology transfer RFP
Posted on September 28, 2015
The National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC) announces the opportunity to apply for grants to support implementation or translation of research results.
Grants are limited to disseminating results stemming from previously funded and completed research funded by the Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) or NITC. The purpose of these awards is to turn research into products that can be used by practitioners and/or researchers to further advance implementation. Priority will be given to projects that promote transportation and livable communities.
Examples of technology transfer activities include:
- Activity aimed at assisting local agencies or partners in implementing research results. This can be in the form of an in-person workshop, on-line webinar, development of a “how to” or training video, handbook, guidebook, software/spreadsheet tools, etc.
- Refining or developing and disseminating tools that can be used by practitioners, students, or researchers to further the state of the practice.

Proposals are due November 6, 2015. If you miss this cycle, there may be another opportunity in the next year to apply pending funding.
