Hans Klein, an associate professor in the School of Public Policy, has been appointed by U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood to the Intelligent Transportation Systems Program Advisory Committee (ITS PAC).

The committee is charged with reviewing areas of ITS research being pursued by the U.S. Department of Transportation and providing advice on policy matters related to the ITS program. 

Klein’s research focuses on the interplay of institutions and information technology, especially in the areas of Internet governance and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) development.  In his ITS research, Dr. Klein has studied how the pre-existing institutions of the transportation sector (such as the ecology of Federal agencies and the division of responsibilities between Federal and State agencies) both helped to launch the ITS program and created barriers to rapid deployment.  Currently, Dr. Klein is especially interested in how Federal agencies can facilitate private sector entrepreneurship that unlocks information-based value in the transportation sector.
