The UIC informs you that the 6th edition of the WCRT is being postponed to 19-21 October in Moscow at Russian University of Transport (RUT).

A webinar organised by the Talent & Expertise Development Platform (TEDP) will be held on 19 May under the theme “Towards the World Congress on Rail Training”.

WCRT is a unique opportunity for the Rail companies HR and training communities, as well as academia, independent training and consulting organisations, and professional and training associations, to gather and discuss current issues in their field of activity. Based on statistics from previous editions, UIC WCRT is attended by an average of 200 participants from all continents representing between 35 and 40 countries.

For the first time since its inception in 2011, the Congress can be attended both physically at the RUT’s premises and remotely, online.

On-site attendance offers numerous opportunities to make connections, hold talks and exchange live opinions on the topics covered and further developments, witness the youth hackathon event on the eve of the Congress, visit exhibitons, cultural and technical sites, and participate in a gala dinner [1].

The opportunity to watch and ask questions online is reserved for those who will not be able to come but want to feel part of the global professional community, gather insights and get in touch with new initiatives, thus extending the impact of the UIC activity in education and training.

Do not miss this opportunity and join us!

There are several ways to be part of our community:

  • You can attend as a participant to get acquainted with best practices in rail HRM, training and education.


  • You can participate as a speaker to share your organisation’s success stories and ideas. The speakers will be selected from among the topics suggested in the abstracts and among those registered as speakers before the deadline. You can submit an abstract until the end of October 2021.
    Please keep in mind that registration fees displayed on the WCRT website are early bird rates. You can take advantage of them until 1st November 2021. After this date, the fees might be revised.

Submit your abstract

  • You can become a partner or a sponsor and join colleagues from FS and SNCF, our current official partners.
