UCCONNECT and Caltrans Divisions of Research, Innovation and System Information (DRISI) and Transportation Planning (DOTP) have set aside approximately $630,000 to fund 1-year research projects to advance the goals and objectives in Caltrans’ Strategic Management Plan, which can be accessed at the link below (www.dot.ca.gov/perf/). Principal investigators from the five UC campuses within the UCCONNECT consortium, Berkeley, Irvine, Los Angeles, Riverside and Santa Barbara, along with PI’s from UCCONNECT’s affiliate campus, the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, are invited to submit research proposals in response to this call.
Proposals should address one or more of the broad, interconnected goals described in Section 1 of the RFP (see document link below). Be aware, however, that UCCONNECT is inclined to develop a diverse research portfolio, and would therefore be hesitant to fund new research that duplicates or closely follows ongoing work already sponsored by the center. Summaries of previous and ongoing works can be found at www.ucconnect.berkeley.edu/research. Potential PI’s are encouraged to review those links before preparing proposals.
Questions concerning the preparation or submission of proposals in response to this call can be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
