Center for the Commercialization of Innovative Transportation Technology

The CCITT is a university trasportation center operated within the Northwestern University Transportation Center in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science. The CCITT's mission is to foster the commercialization or implementation of innovative technologies for multiple modes of surface transportation including, but not limited to, railways, mass transit, highways, and waterways. To accomplish this mission, the CCITT awards funding to Northwestern faculty to conduct translational "innovation gap" research projects that push existing research outcomes closer to the point of adoption and implementation by transportation practitioners. The NUTC has held administrative responsibility for the CCITT since July of 2009.
