Research Program Priority Areas
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.
While we are open to any project aligned with CARTEEH’s mission, we are giving priority to projects that address issues at the nexus of transportation infrastructure and health. CARTEEH is initiating the development of the Healthy People through SMART Infrastructure Framework, which focuses on planning transportation infrastructure that is Sustainable, Multi-modal, Accessible, Resilient, and Technological (SMART) with the goal of improving the health of society. The framework focuses on the planning phase of infrastructure development as it will help decision makers make informed decisions about infrastructure choices. The development of the SMART Framework is a collaborative effort recently kicked off by CARTEEH’s partner institutions.
Considering this new initiative, CARTEEH is seeking to fund projects that:
- Address transportation emissions, energy and health in the broader context of transportation infrastructure planning
- Provide practical solutions to understand and address transportation emissions- and health-related issues
- Support graduate students in the development of their theses and dissertations
- Promote technology transfer and outreach to transportation stakeholders
