For Researchers

The AA Research Foundation commissions research that fills gaps in New Zealand road safety knowledge. 

With the transport environment constantly changing, there are always opportunities to increase our understanding of current road safety issues.  


Research applications

Researchers seeking sponsorship for a research proposal are welcome to contact the AA Research Foundation. 

All sponsored research projects need strong support from implementing agencies, or evidence that the research could have a positive effect on public road safety by influencing policy or practice.

AA Research Foundation Trustees appoint Steering Committees made up of representatives from a wide range of relevant organisations to help oversee approved projects. 

The Foundation requires that intellectual property rights paid for by the Foundation remain vested in the Foundation. In general the Foundation will publish or authorise publication of any research funded by it.
