Advanced Research at DOT

04.24.23 | 1 min read

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS), in support of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), is seeking bold ideas and people to tackle persistent and emerging transportation and infrastructure issues across the United States.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 authorized the creation of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Infrastructure (ARPA-I). ARPA-I presents a generational opportunity for DOT to think big and take on monumental challenges across transportation and infrastructure–including in the domains of safety, digital infrastructure, resilient and climate-prepared infrastructure, and many more–that are ripe for breakthrough innovation.

FAS is assisting DOT in developing breakthrough ideas and identifying experts willing to “think big” and creatively about solutions to transportation moonshots.
