Abstract : The report determines long-range research as the area in which universities and non-profit institutions can best perform research for the maritime industry. It provides a response to the question of type and amount of support that universities should receive for maritime research, from the federal government and industry. The report concludes with recommendations for establishing an Institute for Advanced Maritime Management Studies, a strengthened rate of investment in maritime R+D, and broadening maritime-related R+D to consider transportation as a total system.
