Accelerate the adoption of your proven innovation nationwide with the assistance of AASHTO’s Innovation Initiative (AII) program. AII awards national recognition and the resources to lead other agencies in adopting your proven innovation. Let your success help peers in other states skip red tape that can bog fresh ideas down. Lead your colleagues in delivering the advantages of your cutting edge work to their customers.
The Initiative is a peer-to-peer innovation advancement program. Innovators get the AASHTO "seal of approval" and resources to advance proven, leading edge practices into common use among transportation agencies. AII innovations work because they were developed, tested and successfully adopted by your peers. AASHTO organizes these innovators on teams and surrounds them with resources to help them help you deliver those innovations to your customers.
