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 consider potentially larger projects. It may take several months for us to respond to you about your idea. This is the EXPANDED form. VTrans Research Staff can work with you on these responses (please contact Research Manager, Emily Parkany, email@example.com). This is a mini-proposal--please think in terms of up to 1 1/2 pages of text. If the idea is intriguing, potential researchers will be asked for a formal proposal. The SIMPLE form can be found here.
