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.
