IdeaHub Disclaimer

The Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) is managed by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, acting through its Transportation Research Board (TRB). Program oversight and governance are provided by representatives of airport operating agencies appointed to the ACRP Oversight Committee by the Secretary of the Department of Transportation. ACRP is using the IdeaScale platform (a.k.a. ACRP IdeaHub) to engage the airport community in an online dialogue to develop problem statements that can be considered for future research projects that would help and improve the airport industry.
