On the basis of his professional, didactic and organizational  achievements to date as well as his scientific record review, particularly the series of 17 publications under a common title ”Safety Study in Rail Transport Ranging from Risk Analyses and Technical Safety to the Resulting Method of Establishing the of Safety, Security and Cybersecurity" completed with a monograph entitled “Reference Functional Model  of Railway Transport Security and Safety by Data Transmission Systems” (http://www.wydawnictwopw.pl/index.php?s=karta&id=3457), due to the Resolution No. 6/I/2019 of 26 November 2019, the Scientific Council of the Civil Engineering and Transport awarded  Mr. Doctor Eng. Marek Pawlik, an employee of the Railway Research Institute, the post-doctoral degree (Doctor of Science – Sc.D.) in the field of civil engineering and transport.

The post-doctoral monograph consists of seven chapters whose aim is to develop a comprehensive approach to railway transport security and safety in reference to  overall functions carried out by technical systems using acquisition, computing and transfer of the data, which impact the comprehensive rail transport system’s security and safety levels.


Mr. Marek Pawlik began working for the Railway Research Institute in 1988 having graduated from the Faculty of Precision Mechanics at the Warsaw University of Technology. In 2001 he received a PhD degree in Technical Sciences in Transport from the Faculty of Transport at the Warsaw University of Technology. Since 2012 he has been lecturing at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology.

Since 2003 he has been actively participating in the Section of Control-Command and Signalling in Transport at the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN).

Since 2004 he has been serving as a Chairman of  Technical Committee KT61 on Electrical Traction Equipment and since 2007 he has also been chairing Technical Committee KT138 on Railways of the Polish Committee for Standardization (PKN).

He is the author of 124 publications, including 7 books and 24 chapters in books written by many authors. The range of his scientific achievements and publications are available at ORCID database (https://orcid.org/0000-0003-3357-7706).
