TECHNIQUES FOR SETTING RESEARCH PRIORITIES

This paper highlights varying techniques of identifying research needs in all areas of transportation, which is a continuing function of more than 150 Transportation Research Board committees. The techniques described were generally adopted to suit the conditions and needs at the time. There is a strong identification that the technique selected can considerably influence the results. Applications of two or perhaps three techniques to a set of project statements may be a sound approach. Comparing the results of the techniques applied to the same set and administered by the same evaluators will provide additional information for establishing a research program.
