Spring 2014 UConn Pilot Project Competition

The proposed project is a small, pilot research project competition to be administered in Fall 2014 and executed in full by May 2015. Proposals will be solicited from University of Connecticut (UConn) researchers in fields related to transportation. Proposed projects will be able to request a maximum of $10,000. It is anticipated that 3-4 projects will be selected. The projects can range from equipment, data collection, advanced exploratory analysis or other efforts to explore new, potentially disruptive avenues of research. Proposals will conform to New England University Transportation Center (NEUTC) standards and will require a 1:1 match for all costs. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee comprised of internal and external reviewers. Preference will be given to projects that demonstrate potential for generating preliminary results and data, enabling transition to larger-scale development in the near term. Funds will be required to be expended by May 31, 2015. Once projects are selected, it is anticipated that this project description will be supplemented by the individual pilot project descriptions.
