Propose New Topics for the 2022 NCHRP Synthesis Program: Submissions due February 17

TRB’s National Highway Cooperative Research Program (NCHRP) is seeking potential synthesis study topics for the 2022 NCHRP Synthesis Program. In the coming year, NCHRP will fund 18 new synthesis topics. A new Synthesis Topic Outline offers guidance in creating a topic. Topics must be submitted through the NCHRP Synthesis Topic Submission Portal by February 17, 2021.

A synthesis study documents current practice and experience for specific highway topics.  The following
factors are considered in the selection process for new topics.

  • The objective of the scope of work is to document current highway practice in state departments of transportation (DOTs);
  • The synthesis documents current practice, not best practice; it is not a research project or a guidebook;
  • The topic addresses an area of practice that is widespread and of general interest to state DOTs; and
  • The topic should be timely and critical for expediting delivery, improving the quality, or lowering the cost of highway programs.

Please forward this announcement to others who may be interested. For further information, contact Jo Allen Gause at
