C2SMART is committed to pursuing implementable solutions to today’s most challenging urban transportation problems and ensuring those solutions make the transition from the research phase to real-world applications. The Center’s technology transfer strategy is a key part of this mission, which includes facilitating data- and information-sharing among academia, government, and industry and seeking ways to hear and meet the needs of various stakeholders in transportation. To ensure that the outcomes of our research reach the appropriate parties, C2SMART and its affiliated faculty researchers commit time and resources to involving key stakeholders in the research process and undertaking a comprehensive outreach and dissemination program. The Center regularly hosts events focused on technology transfer and research dissemination, including the Symposium on Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in New York City, as well as specialized workshops and forums, seminars, and webinars. If you are interested in learning more about or attending one of our events, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up for our mailing list.
C2SMART built a new collaborative research platform, Common Innovation Platform (CIP), which allows for greater and increased collaboration between the different members of the research consortium. CIP provides two-way interaction using API capabilities that brings together interconnected data repositories, project and task management tools for expected deliverables and datasets, and a collaborative project workspace. CIP can integrate version control systems as well as project management tools within the collaborative workspace, which allows all participating users to see and manipulate the data simultaneously for centralized research collaboration.
