Our Team

NEUTC is led by the University of Massachusetts Amherst and is comprised of eight universities or colleges across New England.

Center Themes

Our research and educational activities at NEUTC are guided by four principal safety themes, each addressing a critical challenge in transportation safety. These themes capture the various integral components of the transportation system, focusing on technology, infrastructure, vehicles, and users with a commitment to equity and public engagement. Our overarching theme is promoting safety, with the common underlying science being the study of behavioral, systemic, environmental, and mobility-driven factors on safety.
