FHWA 2018 EXPLORATORY ADVANCED RESEARCH BROAD AGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT - Federal Business Op... - 0 views

  •  
    FHWA identifies and scopes topics through extensive initial-stage investigation and engages national and international experts to assure use of the most recent advances in science and engineering. FHWA is moving forward with four topics that have a strong scientific and technical basis and national importance through the issuance of this BAA.
    This program is intended to spur innovation and focus on higher risk and higher pay-off research. Exploratory advanced research bridges basic and applied research. In contrast to basic research, EAR Program funded research projects have a mission-orientation. In contrast to applied research, EAR Program funded research does not pursue a narrowly-defined application or product. Incremental advances and demonstrations or evaluations of existing technologies are not within the scope of this program.
