Dr. Clifton to direct the Oregon Modeling Collaborative

The Oregon Modeling Collaborative (OMC) was formed in spring 2010 to provide modeling tools and methods in support of Oregon’s transportation and land use planning and policy efforts. The OMC is comprised of members of the academic, policy and consulting sectors in Oregon and led by Dr. Kelly Clifton at PSU. This modeling initiative will enhance Oregon’s cutting-edge analytical methods and tools and a major statewide data collection program underway to meet the challenges of planning for a sustainable future. The OMC is initially funded by a grant from OTREC (http://otrec.us/) and research support from ODOT. More information about the OMC can be found at: http://www.pdx.edu/omc/.
