"Encouraging research and knowledge ..., 4 April 2014 [cached]
"Encouraging research and knowledge transfer between the academic and private sectors is key to the social and economic progress of a society, and that is precisely what abertis is looking to achieve through this program," said Benjamín Colucci, professor at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico's Mayagüez campus (RUM), and director of Catedra abertis in Puerto Rico.
"The students who are awarded with the top prizes will contribute to find transportation solutions that will improve the quality of life of all Puerto Ricans," he said.
The winning dissertations in Puerto Rico will go on to compete at an international level with counterparts in Chile, France and Spain, places where abertis has established the program in collaboration with universities and academic institutions since 2003.
"In Puerto Rico there is a significant and proven pool of talent in the engineering field. I invite qualified candidates to participate in this award, which will both contribute to advance the transportation infrastructure field in the island, as well as at the international level," Colucci said.
This program supports Fundacion abertis' mission to promote research related to the impact that great works of infrastructure can have in countries where abertis has a corporate footprint.
Interested parties have until Dec. 20 to participate. A copy of their work in print and digital formats along with a letter of intent must be submitted to Sede de la Cátedra abertis, Civil Engineering Building, Office CI-105ª, Department of Civil Engineering UPR- Mayagüez. For more information candidates may contact Colucci by email at or by phone at 787-834-6385, 787-832-40404 x. 3393/3403

The island has one of the highest rates of car ownership in the world and the greatest density of cars per mile of metropolitan-area highway, says Benjamin Colucci, an engineering professor at the University of Puerto Rico who is a consultant on the project.
But the urban train is now being scrutinized as a model, especially in the Caribbean and South America, said Professor Colucci, who has given seminars about it in the Dominican Republic, Panama and Venezuela.
Still, officials here say Puerto Ricans themselves need to get used to the train, and that will apparently take some doing.
For one thing, the owners of p,blicos - private vans and cars that transport commuters for a fare - see the train as competition instead of a partner to work in tandem with, Professor Colucci said.
"We need p,blicos always arriving at a certain time to meet people when they get off the train," he said."If no p,blico is there, then the person doesn't have a link to get to a final destination."
The Metropolitan Bus Authority, which could encourage train ridership by picking up passengers where rail routes end, is also competing with the train at present, Professor Colucci said, although the length of bus line overlapping with train route is to disappear eventually.
