Q. How can I submit an idea?
TRB's IDEA Program (funding for research)
If you have an idea relating to highways, safety, or transit, you may want to present your idea to the Transportation Research Board's IDEA Program.
IDEA programs fund research into promising but unproven innovations for highways, transportation safety, and transit. Investigators may submit proposals in March or September of each year to be considered for funding. The annual program annoucenment provides information about the programs and includes instructions and forms for submitting proposals.
