GAPS IN RESEARCH FUNDING: REASONS AND POSSIBLE REMEDIES

This paper presents a summary of the proceedings of the September 1987 meeting of the Transportation Research Board Group 1 Council. The meeting was prompted by a strong sense that research funding in transportation, particularly on the "soft" side, had been declining rather dramatically. A number of people on the buyer's side of transportation research and some people on the seller's side were brought together to give their perspective on what was happening with transportation research spending. A structured discussion with a facilitator was then conducted to try to distill out of this information what really was happening and what might be done about. Seven major factors that were responsible for the problem of inadequate research funding were identified and prioritized.
