Abstract : This chapter is based on the Researcher Plenary Panel held at the International Symposium on Aviation Psychology (ISAP) in May of 2015. This Panel followed the Practitioner Plenary Panel held on the preceding day of the symposium. The overarching goal of the two sessions was to foster a dialogue between operational personnel and researchers towards a safer and more efficient sky. The charge to the practitioner panelists was to inform the aviation community of their operational challenges. Their thoughts and discussions are captured in Chapter 2 of this volume. The charge to the researcher panelists was to explore best approaches that would bridge the gaps between basic research and current practical applications. The value of use-inspired basic research was discussed to a great extent by Stokes (1997). That use-inspired research would be a good path towards accelerating the process of putting basic knowledge to practical use will be revisited in this chapter.
