R&T Portfolio: Global Outreach

The Global Outreach research program seeks to gather, promote, and disseminate global policy, best practices, and technical innovations to ensure a safe and efficient U.S. highway transportation system. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) actively engages with peer agencies around the world to improve transportation policy in the United States by learning from international research efforts through global benchmarking efforts, multinational coordination, and binational cooperation. Through those same channels, FHWA also shares developments in U.S. policies and practices, potentially opening access for U.S. companies abroad.

Program Objectives:

  • Identify, evaluate, and adapt foreign technologies and practices with the potential to significantly improve highway transportation in the United States.
  • Enable U.S. stakeholders to access and accelerate deployment of technology, best practices, and information relevant to domestic transportation priorities.
  • Promote global awareness of U.S. technologies and best practices, which improves market access for U.S. transportation firms.
