Pipeline Research & Development Forum

February 19-20, 2020

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration will hold their next Pipeline R&D Forum on February 19-20, 2020 in Arlington, VA.  The forum allows public, government and industry pipeline stakeholders to develop recommendations on the technical gaps and challenges for future research. It also reduces duplication of programs, factors ongoing research efforts, leverages resources and broadens synergies. The national research agenda coming out of these events is aligned with the needs of the pipeline safety mission, makes use of the best available knowledge and expertise, and considers stakeholder perspectives. Specifically, the forum:

1. Identifies key pipeline technical challenges facing industry and government;

2. Disseminates information on current research efforts; and

3. Identifies new research that can help to meet known challenges.
