Core Research Projects

PHMSA partners with research entities to develop near solutions focused on knowledge development and technology solution to improve pipeline safety. All research topics require resource sharing. For research topics developing technology, the mandatory minimum cost share is 50% from non-federal sources. For research topics developing knowledge, the mandatory minimum cost share is 20% from non-federal sources. Research topics address key PHMSA Priorities derived from Public Meetings and Research Forums held regularly.
