Welcome to the TRB AJE35 Research Innovation Implementation Management (RIIM) Committee website.
RIIM explores research and innovation processes and life cycles, from formulating needs through conduct of research and development efforts to technology transfer and implementation activities. We welcome you to attend our meetings and get involved with our three Subcommittees: Coordination, Collaboration and Outreach; Emerging Topics; and Innovation Lifecycles. We also have Communications, Research Needs, and Paper Review Task Groups.
