Collaborative Proposal: Resilience: Definitions, Measurement, Tools, and Research Opportunities

The goal of this project is to develop a road map for research through the Center for Advanced Infrastructure & Transportation (CAIT) on transportation infrastructure resilience. The objective is to: 1) Develop an inventory and assessment of current research and activities. 2) Develop an inventory of research needs and prioritize these needs. 3) Connect these research needs to: a) CAIT’s mission (and U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOTs) strategic goals) related to state of good repair, safety and economic competitiveness; b) Current capabilities and interests within the consortium; c) Potential for leveraging investments and building synergies; The product of the research, the roadmap, can serve as a resource for future research proposals, assisting CAIT Consortium members to use consistent terminology and understand the context for new ideas in the current body of knowledge.
