Joint Undertaking of NCBR – PKP PLK S.A. consisting in supporting scientific research and development works in the area of ​​railway infrastructure called Research and Development in Railway Infrastructure – BRIK, competition II. The implementation of the BRIK Joint Undertaking will contribute to the improvement of the technical condition of the railway network, reduction of the negative impact of rail transport on the environment, more efficient maintenance and modernization of the railway infrastructure and improvement of safety. Moreover, the implementation of the Joint Undertaking will enable the development of innovative IT systems, which will increase the competitiveness of rail transport in relation to other means of transport. At the same time, it is assumed that the implementation of the results of research and development projects implemented under the Joint Undertaking will positively affect the financial results of PLK S.A., providing modern solutions that optimize the costs of railway infrastructure management. The main goal of the Project is to increase the innovation and competitiveness of rail transport by 2033. The specific goals are: Increased R&D activity in the area of ​​railway infrastructure. Increase in the number of innovative solutions in the area of ​​railway infrastructure. Improving the efficiency of operation and management of railway infrastructure. Reducing the negative impact of rail transport on the environment.
