RSSB has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Korea Railroad Research Institute (KRRI), enabling more collaboration in research and development to further improve railway safety.

The MOU was signed at InnoTrans, the International Trade Fair for Transport Technology, in Berlin, last week. 

RSSB and KRRI intend to cooperate on:

  • Research and development or technology, such as data-based safety management technology, 
  • Sharing experiences and best practices on technical issues, such as safety assessment methods, rail accident investigation, statistics, and human or organisational factors, and
  • Safety enhancement initiatives, including research and studies on emerging safety issues identified by data analysis.

RSSB chief commercial officer, Paul McLaughlin said: “RSSB and KRRI bring decades of knowledge, data, analysis and experience to our respective railways. We will now be able to identify opportunities for collaboration, solving shared problems and unlocking potential for the future.

“Closer collaboration between RSSB and KRRI will ensure new technology and new thinking can be applied safely, driving further improvements in railway health, efficiency, sustainability, and performance.”  

KRRI president, Dr. Seok-youn Han said: “RSSB’s profound insight into railway safety and KRRI’s diverse research activities on various railway areas will create a safer railway for every stakeholder in the rail sector.”
