NCTR's Technology Transfer Efforts

Flow - NCTR's newsletter

CUTRCast

NCTR is pleased to present our commitment to on-demand "CUTRCast" or streaming video and/or audio presentations of research  and topics of interest to the public transportation community.

The benefits of this presentation broadcasting approach to the transportation profession include:

  • Saves time by getting an overview of the research prior to deciding when to read the full report
  • Brings research results to new audiences by exposing staff who may not travel to the conference or meeting to hear the presentation
  • Helps bring new employees up to speed on particular topics
  • Eliminates the time and cost spent traveling to and from conferences
  • Captures the researcher's knowledge by viewing after the presentation ends

Clearinghouses

NCTR and CUTR operate several Clearinghouses to provide free short-term technical assistance to the public, transportation professionals and public policymakers.

Listservs

NCTR operates several listservs as email discussion groups.  Online discussions allow many users to share information and ideas with a group, but also bring together people who otherwise would not reach one another. Email discussion groups differ from announcement lists that are used for email direct marketing or e-publishing, in which only a limited number of authorized users can send messages to the list.

Click on the RSS button to the left to subscribe to NCTR RSS for notification of new publications, conferences and streaming media presentations.  What is RSS?  Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution via news readers and blogs. It includes abstracts of research reports with links to the full reports, streaming presentations on research projects, announcements of upcoming events, and topical netconferences with speakers from across the country.
