Less than 24 hours to go until RailTech Europe 2022
On Tuesday, RailTech Europe 2022 will kickoff in Utrecht, the Netherlands. This three-day international gathering of railway professionals will feature a conference, workshops, an exhibition area including an outside equipment and vehicle demonstration site, as well as an innovation square.
This year’s conference has three main pillars: The Digital Railway, Resilient Rail & Sustainability and International Long Distance Connections. Speakers on day one will discuss the rollout of ERTMS, railway communications and cyber security. How railways can adapt and can become more resilient in the face of climate change will be the theme of the second day of the conference. Day three will delve into cross-border connections, ticketing and all that which can make railways a more suitable alternative to flying.
There will be an extensive workshop programme across the three days of the event, too. Programme partner ProRail will be hosting several sessions, where the Dutch infrastructure manager will talking about data science, ERTMS CCS and zero-emission machinery, among other topics. Other companies giving presentations include Fugro, Ricardo Rail, CGI and Hardt Hyperloop.
Another highlight is the exhibition area, where dozens of companies from around the world will be present their latest products and innovations, such as Siemens Mobility, Thales and Vossloh. Curious about the floor plan? Click here.
The event’s so-called innovation square will feature the companies vying for this year’s innovation awards for the best products or services. There will be awards in four categories: digitalisation, infrastructure, technology & design and start-ups. The winners will be announced during the Innovation Award show on Tuesday evening.
