TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH IN UNIVERSITIES

The relation between research and educational programs is established initially, as is the current level of university involvement in transportation research. Descriptions are given of current research programs such as RANN (Research Applied to National Needs), UMTA (Urban Mass Transportation Administration), HPR (Highway Planning and Research), NCHRP (National Cooperative Highway Research Program) and PUR (Program of University Research). The summary observations presented include discussions of: freedom in problem definition; continuity and adequacy of funding; institutionalization; interdisciplinary approach; requirements for response; real-world interaction; and prospect for implementation. The author discusses the implications of changing values and the trends to be set by them.
