Please provide your research idea or question here. We're hoping to use this form to match VTrans staff and potential researchers. Researchers could be VTrans research staff, professors/staff working with or without student assistance at a university, or consultants. Ideas will be solicited throughout the year and we will look closely at least twice--in July as we assemble the federal work plan for the research program (probably considering smaller projects) and in October-November as we look at potentially larger projects. It may take several months for us to respond to you about your idea. This is the SIMPLE form. If you have a more-developed idea, please submit it to the EXPANDED form.
