A “UIC Day” in Lisbon was organised with the Chairman of the UIC European Region Mr Francisco Cardoso Dos Reis, Member of the Board of IP (Infraestruturas de Portugal) and brought together a broad representation from companies and officials. The UIC management team shared concrete developments concerning digital asset management, intelligent wagons, standardisation and digital solutions for passenger and freight.
François Davenne, UIC Deputy Director General, on behalf of Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, highlighted the core role of UIC as a platform for developing seamless transport and multimodality. Key projects undertaken by UIC such as FRMCS will be the enablers for establishing rail as backbone for mobility.
After a first UIC Day organised in Washington at the Federal Railroad Administration last June, this second UIC Day will be followed by other ones in 2019 in order to better know the needs of UIC Members, to discuss their priorities and to offer them a better direct added-value and more benefit from UIC technical expertise.
