At the 93rd General Assembly of the International Union of Railways (UIC) held in Paris, France on Friday, 7th December 2018, the KRRI (Seungho Jang and Hee-seung Na) received the Best Award in Rail Freight Service of the 2018 UIC Global Research & Innovation Awards for its research on Gauge-Changing Bogie developed for trans-Korean and continental railway interconnection.
Gauge-Changing Bogie is a new technology to interconnect continental railways by overcoming the difference between standard gauge used by South Korea, North Korea and China and broad gauge of Russia.
The Global Research & Innovation Awards are granted by the International Union of Railways (UIC) to contribute to the development of international railway industry. It selects innovative research results that can become an example for member countries around the world in six categories, including Safety and Security, Sustainable Development, Rail System Technology, Rail Freight Service, Passenger Service, and Cost Reductions.
