Accelerating the Implementation of Transportation Research Results
NCHRP Synthesis 461: This synthesis examines implementation practices used by public-sector nontransportation agencies, nonprofits, and academia to accelerate practical application of research
results. The emphasis is on practices that might be useful for transportation agencies to create more responsive research programs. A series of implementation case examples and
practices are presented.
Information for this study was gathered through a comprehensive literature review of U.S. and selected international sources. Agency websites were searched and interviews were conducted with key individuals at case example agencies.
