ORIL Idea Sessions
Local Research Funding

The purpose of ORIL is to provide research support for local agencies to address problems specific to the local roadway system. These idea sessions will provide an overview of what ORIL is, how it works, and how locals can get involved. An interactive idea generation activity will take place at these sessions to identify and develop ideas.

Idea sessions are typically offered once a year and correspond with the solicitation for research ideas. To view presentations from past Idea Sessions, please click the links below:

The 2016 ORIL Idea Session will take place during the Ohio Transportation Engineering Conference (OTEC). Join us during Session #70 on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 10:00AM for updates on active projects and information on submitting an idea for the FY2018 program.
