Are you interested in submitting your great idea to the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)? TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, January 27, 2020, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will talk you through the process. Although nearly every ACRP research project begins its life as a problem statement, the problem statement writing process can be daunting. This webinar will provide tips from two ACRP Senior Program Officers about writing an effective problem statement and how to submit it to IdeaHub. IdeaHub is ACRP’s online collaborative platform for identifying research ideas and turning them into problem statements. Presenters will discuss how to maximize problem statement effectiveness and explain how to use IdeaHub.

This webinar is sponsored by ACRP. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into to view registration information.
