Quick Response for Special Needs. Task 33. Research Roadmap on Policy and Planning Issues

As an industry-driven research program, ACRP relies on a flow of quality research ideas into the program. One important element to this flow is a research roadmap that is defined as a dynamic strategic research plan in a specific topic area that identifies gaps in knowledge and practice as well as key opportunities and challenges, and outlines and prioritizes specific research ideas needed to address these gaps. The intent of a roadmap is to facilitate industry development of problem statements and identify future research. Airport policy and planning at all types and sizes of airports can share the same mission or similar missions in their day-to-day policy and long-term planning. These missions include, for example, regulatory compliance, asset management, and operational efficiency and effectiveness, among others. Understanding these common missions can be helpful in organizing and understanding where there are knowledge gaps. This research roadmap further defines and prioritizes those areas of further research in the area of airport policy and planning. The objective of this research was to develop a research roadmap in the area of airport policy and planning. The roadmap is a prioritized list of topics/themes and described in sufficient detail to help and encourage the industry, and for ACRP to consider for the next 3 to 5 years in developing problem statements. The final deliverable is a prioritized list of research ideas (roadmap) in the area of airport policy and planning.
