Our research organisation deals with independent research, development and testing of railway vehicles, their parts and other components from the area of transport engineering. The company also offers advisory and consultancy service in these areas.
These activities are performed by a team of highly qualified and experienced in-house experts applying the most up-to-date methods, procedures and equipment.
We cooperate with both domestic and foreign partners in terms of realization of independent research. Both domestic and foreign manufacturers of railway rolling stock and transport technology, repair plants, infrastructure administrators and operators are our clients in terms of advisory and consulting activities.

Products actively developed and launched by the VÚKV a.s. or with the company contribution, can be encountered not only in the Czech Republic but also in many countries of the world.
The goal of our research organisation is to offer complex project solutions up to the best current technological standards with satisfied customers and users at the end of the chain.
