UTC Spotlight Conferences


Every year, DOT and the University Transportation Centers program work with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies to convene a forum that brings together thought leaders in government, industry and academia to discuss current and emerging transportation topics with far-reaching implications for the safety, efficiency and resilience of our transportation system, communities and economy. Proceedings from past UTC Spotlight Conferences are available to the public on the TRB website, and are accessible through the links below:
