RSSB has run a range of research and innovation competitions over the years, which have been designed to help the rail industry tackle the issues of today and enable the railway of the future to be better, safer and more sustainable. 

Our research programme, mainly funded by the Department for Transport, is uniquely placed to tackle cross-industry challenges and make system interface improvements.

New calls for research for feasibility studies on new ideas and approaches and novel solutions will be posted below, along with information about projects that are in currently delivery or have now closed.
