Preliminary Investigations (Innovative Ideas)

In 2005, FHWA held a series of think tank forums bringing together a cross section of stakeholders and partners to make recommendations for a corporate, strategic, advanced research agenda for FHWA. Three such forums were organized to explore future advanced research possibilities within a set of domains relevant to the mission of FHWA.
