About the research

The Technology Transfer Concrete Consortium (TTCC) pooled fund project has participated in National Concrete Consortium (NC²) meetings and other technical training events. The TTCC series of pooled funds has also supported numerous technology deployment products, including the NC² E-News; the NC² States’ Q&A Listserv; the NC² Research Needs Analysis; the development of a wide range of technical resources via sponsored research (see below); and, following the conclusion of the CP Road Map, continued publication of the quarterly Moving-Advancements-into-Practice (MAP) briefs (see below).
