The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is soliciting proposals on research topics that would have an impact on the safety and efficiency of U.S. freight- and passenger-rail operations.

Last week, the FRA released a Broad Agency Announcement, which provides opportunities to government, industry and academia to conduct applied technology research that will support the objectives of the Office of Research, Development and Technology and its four divisions: track, rolling stock, train control and communication, and human factors.

Proposals are due May 22. More information is available on the System for Award Management website.
