ACRP 11-02/Task 32 [Anticipated]

Research Roadmap on Environmental Issues

  Project Data
Funds: $100,000
Staff Responsibility: Joseph D. Navarrete
Fiscal Year: 2018

This project has been tentatively selected and a project statement (request for proposals) is expected in November 2017. The project statement will be available on this world wide web site. The problem statement below will be the starting point for a panel of experts to develop the project statement.

As an industry-driven research program, ACRP relies on a flow of quality research ideas from airport industry practitioners into the program. One important element to this flow is a roadmap of research needs that can guide practitioners as they consider the most important needs for the industry. Such a roadmap can provide a dynamic strategic research plan on a variety of topics.  Each research topic has a unique group of subject matter experts (SMEs) and important issues or needs.  A research roadmap exercise in each area can identify gaps in knowledge, practice, and technology; describe key opportunities and challenges; and outline and prioritize specific research ideas needed to address the issues that are important to the practitioners that work in that function throughout the airport industry.  Each of these projects will develop a prioritized list of research ideas sorted into topics/themes and described in sufficient depth and detail to convey the idea's concept and help and encourage the industry to develop complete ACRP problem statements. 

The objective of this research is to facilitate research roadmap on airport environmental issues in order to identify future research needs that in turn can inspire industry practitioners to develop problem statements.
