The Center conducts research on cutting-edge project finance techniques and topics. The Center's Research Services aim to undertake objective research into specific financial management and policy issues, many of which are actually suggested by State DOTs. These findings are summarized in a series of Occasional Papers, as a resource for project sponsors and policy makers.
Focus areas include the development of case study instructional materials for use by the Center and other educational organizations, and interdisciplinary academic assessments of project finance techniques, among others. The Center also collaborates with other entities including the Transportation Research Board to help organize such symposiums as the TRB National Conference on Transportation Finance to aid in the development of state-of-the-art project finance tools and methods.
