As in previous years, the UIC Passenger Department is preparing the 14th Training Session on High Speed Systems which will take place from 23 – 27 April 2018 in Paris.

Around 40 participants are given the opportunity each year to interact with more than 40 high-level speakers during a week-long training session that reviews all of the components of a high-speed rail (HSR) system in detail. The Training on High Speed Rail systems (THSR) is aimed at decision-makers and is held every year, divided into two different stages.

If you are interested in acquiring a comprehensive overview of the high speed system or if you are a manager in a decision-making role in the transport sector in general, and in the railways in particular, the seminar will:

  • Give a global vision on HSR to experts on some particular elements of the system
  • Provide managers with all the information needed to facilitate decision-making on the subject of HSR
  • Definition on path/way to implement a HSR
  • Foster exchange of experience and information about the latest developments in the field

Seminar participants need not have in-depth knowledge of any specific subject relating to high speed systems. Speakers are all experts in the subjects addressed and are drawn mainly from the railways, universities and industry. They represent all the countries and world regions with experience in the field of high speed rail systems.

The registration fee of €1,600 including tax, comprises the training session, working materials, as well as technical visits and lunches. Please contact us for the UIC member special price.

This year, for the very first time, the participants will benefit from a 30% discount in the fees if they decide to join level I (to be held in Paris in April 2018) and level II (to be held in Madrid in December 2018). Notice that both levels are complementary as level I focus on in-depth lectures while level II provides group dynamics and a practical vision of the high speed rail systems.
