FHWA Innovation Exchange Webinar Series

Conversations Launching Change

The Center for Local-aid Support (CLAS) team is the conduit for connecting Local agencies, Tribes and Federal Land Management Agencies to innovative market-ready deployment opportunities that can be used on our nation’s highways to save lives, project delivery time, and money. Through Innovation Exchange webinars, we are bringing cutting-edge transportation leaders to the table to share ideas and out of the box innovative practices that have proven results.

Innovation Exchange webinars are given by subject-matter experts and thought leaders to spread new ideas, spark conversation, and promote innovative leadership for the issues confronting our nation’s transportation system now and in the future. The goal of Innovation Exchange webinars is to allow participants to (1) gain best practices of innovation deployment from subject matter experts, (2) have a venue to discuss transportation related ideas and issues with other transportation partners around the country, and (3) learn and share successful practices.
