The Transport Research Strategy creates an environment that ensures investment in the right research.

The Strategy provides a framework for fostering a better research environment that emphasises collaboration, maximises the economic and social benefits of the transport system and minimises harm.

The Transport Research Strategy gives clear guidance on the direction for transport research and outlines how the diverse research community can collaborate into the future.

The Research Strategy includes four critical and inter-related enablers:

  • Investing in the right research which includes the Triple-4 Framework for knowledge development and prioritisation
  • Facilitating collaboration
  • Ensuring visibility
  • Accessing and investing in the right capability

The Transport Research Strategy has been developed alongside the Transport Domain Plan. The Research Strategy and Domain Plan are complementary documents. Together, they provide the strategic direction we need to fill key data, information and knowledge gaps.
