... 6 WHY NCHRP WORKS A model for cooperative research The model developed for NCHRP not only has functioned effectively for more than 50 years but also has served as the foundation for other successful applied research programs managed by TRB. TRB manages or has managed national cooperative research programs in the fields of highways, transit, airports, hazardous materials, freight, rail transportation, and behavioral traffic safety.

... 7Investing wisely in research The program is not intended to be "all things to all people." NCHRP research is effective because each project is directly targeted at a current problem. Further, by working on shared, national problems and issues, the NCHRP model is designed to seek solutions effectively and efficiently.
