    (Railway Scientific and Technical Centre) is a research & development unit subordinated to Polish Ministry of Infrastucture. The Centre is involved in research and development as well as conformity assesment of products for rail transport. The fields of our activities are:

    Railway infrastructure research
  • permanent way infrastructure (eg. tracks, turnouts, subgrade)
  • control command and signalling (eg. electronic interlocking tests)
  • electric traction and power supply systems (eg. energy quality assesments)
  • telecommunication and telematics (eg. mobile radio system change strategy)
  • environment protection

    Rolling stock research
  • materials and construction elements
  • certification tests for rail passenger cars, freight wagon, locomotives and traction units

    Consulting activities
  • feasibility studies for railway investment projects
  • feasibility studies for urban transport projects
  • transport concepts for large agglomerations and for regions environmental impact analyses

    For over five years CNTK experts have been present in the so-called ”European Research Area” participating in the Framework Programme of the European Union and in the process of adjusting technical requirements of Polish railways to the European standards. On the CNTK experimental track were performed the crashworthiness tests of natural scale rail vehicles in SAFETRAIN project and also urban rail vehicle in SAFETRAM project. The Institute is authorized on national level to issue technical approvals for rail infrastructure.

    CNTK holds
  • German Eisenbahn - Bundesarnt (EBA) acceptance for 14 research procedures
  • Polish Centre for Accreditation (PCA) certificate for 4 laboratories:
    --- Metrology Laboratory, Materials And Construction Elements Laboratory,
    --- Signaling and Telecommunication Laboratory, Rolling Stock Testing Laboratory
