Attend Our Virtual Research & Innovation Poster Symposium in September!
Looking to expand your horizons while staying close to home? Don't miss our Virtual Research and Innovation Poster Symposium, featuring over 30 project posters and pages, including VTrans funded research projects and an even larger number of VTrans innovations.
The launch of the Virtual Research and Innovation Symposium will coincide with a State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) Stakeholder Meeting from 1-3:30 on Wednesday September 9th. The first half of the STIC meeting will feature a Strategic Workforce Development presentation and discussion by Christine Hetzel and Lori Valburn. Immediately following the presentation, we will kick off the Virtual Research and Innovation Symposium! This meeting is open to all, but we ask that you please register in advance.
Project posters and pages will be on virtual display throughout the month of September. If you have questions about a specific project, you can directly email the presenters using the Q&A link on their project page. Presenters will document all questions received, prior to September 14, and post responses/ answers by September 15.
