Implementing Research Results: Characteristics of Organizations and Skill Sets of Individuals Successful at Accelerating Adoption of Innovation

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) hosted a peer exchange to discuss best practices for implementing research results and to identify the characteristics of organizations and skills sets of individuals successful at accelerating adoption of innovation. Attendees included invited participants from other DOTs, FHWA, and the Transportation Research Board (TRB). Among the findings were: the Division of Research and Innovation (DRI) should focus on deployment; DRI should adopt a risk assessment process; training and performance measures should be developed for staff; and, DRI must have a commitment to implement research results.
