OTREC_Logo_web.pngOn June 9, 2008, the Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) Executive Committee selected the top 28 research, education and technology transfer projects for 2008-2009 funding. Forty-nine proposals requesting over $3 million were received in March, and each proposal went through a rigorous peer review process. Peer-reviewers ranked the proposals on the basis of intellectual merit, broader impacts, relevance to OTREC’s theme and the national transportation research agenda. All projects involve transportation faculty and students at one or more of OTREC's partner campuses, and many involve multiple faculty and collaborations across disciplines. Most projects include at least one external matching partner. The list of 2008-2009 projects, including abstracts, can be found here.
