Center for the Commercialization of Innovative Transportation Technology

CCITT - Moving Research to Realization for Surface Transportation

CCITT is a USDOT-funded University Transportation Center operated within the Northwestern University Transportation Center in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science. 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, 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. NUTC has held administrative responsibility for CCITT since July of 2009.
