Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Director General, participated in the National High Speed Rail Leadership Summit in San Jose through a video message. The focus was on “Vision, Investment, Sustainability”.

Among the main ideas highlighted, Jean-Pierre Loubinoux said:

"High Speed helped railways to survive the third energy and technical revolution.
As a driver for the rail sector, it must now be an actor and vector of this fourth industrial revolution of the 21st century.

New connectivity, big data, blockchain, augmented intelligence, will bring to the rail sector better productivity, in operations and maintenance, better security (cyber security) and better services for its customer experience.

UIC, as the worldwide association of railways, with research institutes and its network of universities, always wishes to bring:

  • Innovative ideas
  • Successful experience
  • Beakthrough developments
    To its members, to the sector.

Our philosophy guiding all our actions is embodied in three words: Share, Open, Connect.
