2. The Philosophy and Principle of the Peer Exchange
The use of peer exchanges was established to provide State DOT RD&T programs with the opportunity to examine and evaluate their own programs through a collaborative team of peers, experts, and persons involved in the process, where the exchange of vision, ideas, and best practices could be fostered to benefit both their program and the program of the peer team participants.
Peer exchanges also may be used to examine more focused areas of a State DOT's research program.
