Research governance: prioritising knowledge gaps in transportation in Australia and New Zealand

The transportation field has many touchpoints across a range of disciplines, many of which are interdependent. The gaps in our knowledge needed to optimise our transport system are manyfold. The speed with which the context in which transport is needed can vary too – e.g. a global pandemic - creating different gaps, and sometimes rendering existing knowledge gaps moot. All of this makes allocation of resources to closing knowledge gaps a difficult and dynamic process. In 2018, ARRB published a National Transport Research Plan (NTRP), outlining suggested knowledge gaps. A founding principle of that plan was that the priorities would change and needed annual review. By 2019, it was time to check that those were still priorities, with a view to creating an updated NTRP in 2020. This was ultimately scuppered by the advent of the global pandemic, but not before ARRB had done some preliminary work on identifying the industry’s view of priorities.
