R&I Mission Statement

The Special Committee on Research and Innovation (R&I) will serve as AASHTO’s foremost proponent for high-value transportation research, technology, and innovation to provide a safe and efficient transportation system to improve the nation’s mobility of people and goods. R&I and its Research Advisory Committee (RAC) will support AASHTO and the transportation community in identifying, conducting, delivering, and facilitating deployment of high-value research results. R&I and RAC will ensure that transportation research addresses critical short-term and long-term national needs through its own activities and by consulting and advising other transportation programs at the national, regional, state, and local levels.
