A three-day workshop was held during the week of July 24, 1994, in Vail, Colorado, to identify the requirements of effective and coordinated transportation research programs. The overall goal was to evaluate the following topics and identify shortcomings in their application within transportation research programs: Program Development; Research Methodology; Dissemination of Information/Information Exchange; and Research, Development, and Technology Transfer Coordination. Approaches were identified for the development of proper procedures and methods for conducting transportation research, and potential mechanisms for presenting these approaches to research sponsors were discussed. This circular should be of interest to agencies that sponsor research and can implement the workshop findings through the identified mechanisms. It is organized as follows: Background; Relationship of AASHTO Research Advisory and TRB Conduct of Research Committees; Workshop Topics; Breakout Sessions; Findings and Conclusions of Breakout Sessions A, B, C, and D; Next Steps; Appendix A - Agenda and Attendees; and Appendix B - Breakout Summaries.
