Exploratory Advanced Research Program
Based on broad scanning activities conducted each year inside and outside traditional areas of highway research inquiry, FHWA identifies exploratory advanced research topics that 1) involve discoveries in science of new technology that have the potential to lead to revolutionary change, 2) address significant current or anticipated issues in highway transportation, 3) can engage researchers and facilities with the capacity to solve complex problems that cut across or push the frontiers of traditional disciplines, and 4) would not move otherwise forward without FHWA funding.
