ATLAS Center research  is conducted through three programs:

  • Research Excellence
  • Strategic Initiatives, and
  • Cooperative Research

The Research Excellence Program is a competitive-based process conducted separately at each ATLAS Center institution.

The Strategic Initiatives Program, operated independently at each institution, funds research on strategic and/or emerging issues.

The Cooperative Research Program will provide an opportunity for joint UMTRI/TTI research to be conducted.

The ATLAS Center is a collaboration between the University of Michigan (U-M) Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) and Texas A&M Transportation Institute
