The Center for Advancing Research in Transportation, Emissions, Energy, and Health University Transportation Center (CARTEEH) will be accepting problem statements for its competitive research program through June 21, 2019.
Application form: CARTEEH Problem Statement Application Form
Proposed projects must advance research that addresses transportation emissions in the context of public health.
We are particularly interested in projects that lead to impactful and integrated research on transportation emissions, energy, and health. Proposed projects should be different from or complementary to current CARTEEH-sponsored projects. Proposed projects should also include student involvement, stakeholder engagement, and technology transfer activities. Cost-sharing or leveraging of funds from other sources is also encouraged.
Priority areas include:
- Data and Empirical Measurements – real-world and laboratory measurements that generate data to fill existing gaps in understanding the full-chain effects of transportation emissions to health.
- Modeling Studies – integrated modeling systems that link transportation emissions and energy consumption, and the implications for air pollution and public health. Priority will be given to efforts that integrate and scale-up existing modeling tools.
- Impact Assessment – studies that can inform stakeholders and decision-makers, by:
- providing an understanding of the magnitude, interrelatedness, and tradeoffs of emissions, energy, and health impacts from the transportation sector.
- translating the scientific understanding of impacts into monetary and other metrics, and conducting scenario analyses to facilitate policy making, technology transfer, and public outreach.
- Data Integration – exploring the application of integrated datasets from various disciplines for improving policy, decision-making, and public health outcomes; developing and implementing methodologies that leverage data for innovative purposes in the area of transportation emissions and public health.
