The RIP database is a powerful and free tool for transportation professionals to stay updated on current transportation research projects. TRB hosted a webinar on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Eastern that described the RIP database and how to use it. Live demonstrations were used to show how to find existing records and create new records. To comply with U.S. DOT Public Access Plan and University Transportation Center grant requirements, projects that receive federal funding must be entered into the RIP database. This webinar was designed to help attendees meet this requirement.

This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s Executive Office.

The slides and recording are available.
