NEXTRANS Center Director Srinivas Peeta delivered a presentation on UTC Best Practices at the Council of University Transportation Centers (CUTC) Summer Meeting, which was held June 30 – July 2, 2009 in Amherst, MA. Dr. Peeta’s presentation illustrated how the NEXTRANS Center aims to develop integrated solutions while responding to shifting USDOT priorities. The Center strives to achieve this goal through strategic internal planning; innovative partnerships; and an integrated, dynamic approach to project selection.
Dr. Peeta also discussed the importance of the UTC Grant, results achieved during the first two years of operations, and risks the Center has taken. These include integrating university partners financially and programmatically, developing innovative partnerships driven by common goals, and continuously adapting to changing contexts.
The NEXTRANS Center was one of eight centers invited to present on UTC Best Practices at this year’s meeting, which was hosted by the University of Massachusetts Transportation Center. CUTC's membership represents over 60 of the nation's leading university-based transportation research and education programs.
