UIC and Italian Railways, FS, are pleased to announce the UIC Digital Days, sponsored by MERMEC (Platinum) and IBM (Gold), to be held from 18 – 19 September in Rome under the motto: “Let’s shape the digital future of mobility together”. As part of the work led by the UIC Digital Platform launched at the end of November 2015, UIC has planned a series of dedicated workshops aimed at exploring the links between digitalisation and various dimensions of the railway system. UIC organised the first workshop on 7 October 2016 at UIC Headquarters, focusing on the links between digitalisation on the one hand and freight and passenger services on the other.

Based on a business-oriented approach, the discussions will aim to show the participants in a practical way the advantages of digitalisation, through augmented intelligence, inputs for asset management or railway industry, mapping solutions for 3D railway asset digitalisation; and the theme of cybersecurity will be discussed in depth, along with its strategic approach, the management of crowd movements, security for the digital transformation of rail and infrastructure, and the legal approach.
