NCHRP Implementation Support Program. Development of a Technology Transfer Plan for State Departments of Transportation Research Programs

Several National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) research publications identified best practices and strategies to communicate research results, and to engage with stakeholders, fellow researchers, and the general public. These include research publications such as NCHRP Synthesis 280: Seven Keys to Building a Robust Research Program, NCHRP Report 610: Communicating the Value of Transportation Research, NCHRP Synthesis 522: Managing State Transportation Research Programs, and NCHRP Synthesis 461: Accelerating Implementation of Transportation Research Results. The NCHRP research showed that it is generally a combination of approaches and strategies that foster success, and speed the implementation of research results and realization of research benefits. The research also noted that successful communication and marketing efforts link researchers and research results with their intended audience by strengthening the information flow throughout the research process. Working with the nine member states of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Research Advisory Committee (RAC) Region 3, NCHRP 20-44(28) developed technology transfer materials, processes, and procedures to assist state research managers in developing marketing efforts appropriate for a state DOT research program. The Final Project Report documents efforts of the states to coordinate in the widespread sharing of innovative processes, materials and products resulting from their research projects.
