NCHRP Problem Statement Submission - FY 2021

The AASHTO Special Committee on Research and Innovation (R&I) is soliciting candidate research problems for the Fiscal Year 2021 National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP). NCHRP can only accept statements from State DOTs, AASHTO Committees and Councils, and FHWA. To be considered for the FY 2021 program, problem submittals must arrive by November 1, 2019—this is a firm deadline for all authorized submitters. No exceptions or extensions will be made.
 
A note on implementation …

Recently NCHRP has been placing a much greater emphasis on the implementation of its research results. We are asking problem statement submitters to focus on developing practical products that have a high probability of being implemented and to identify organizations, AASHTO committees, and others that can help to facilitate that implementation. If your problem statement is selected for the NCHRP, you may be asked to play a continuing role in supporting implementation efforts extending beyond the length of the research contract.

Based on feedback we have received over the past few years, this form has been simplified. We now require only a few necessary fields, and the bulk of the problem statement should be uploaded as a Word document based on this outline
