National Transportation Center
The National Transportation Center (NTC) at Morgan State University advances U.S. technology and expertise in transportation, research, and technology transfer on the university level.
The NTC's theme is "Transportation: A Key to Human and Economic Development." The NTC's current areas of research focus are transportation and traffic modeling, safety, economics and equity, transportation funding, and infrastructure's effect on aquatic life. The center also aims to increase the number of minorities and women in transportation.

Their findings impact how faster diffusion of CVs will occur. Read the story here, and if you're really intrigued, you'll find the entire report here.
