R&T Portfolio: State Transportation Innovation Councils

The State Transportation Innovation Councils (STICs) are creating a culture of innovation in the transportation community by leading deployment of new technologies and practices in their States. The STICs bring public and private transportation stakeholders together to evaluate innovations and spearhead deployment in a State. The councils consist of representatives from Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as from industry, academia, and other partners. Through each STIC, stakeholders meet to consider all sources of innovation comprehensively and strategically and to advance the technologies and processes that promise the greatest impacts. This allows each State transportation community to evaluate and deploy innovations that best fit their program needs and put the innovations into practice quickly.

STICs are active in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Federal Lands Highway, creating a national network for exchanging best practices and supporting widespread deployment of innovations. The STICs Incentive program provides resources to advance innovations into standard practices in a State transportation agency. For more information about the STICs Network:

Program Objective:

  • Advance adoption of innovations in State departments of transportation by fostering a culture of innovation among public and private transportation stakeholders.
