SIAFI Europe 2009 (International Rail Activities Information Session): First session 20 to 24 April 2009 / Second session 28 September to 02 October 2009

  • Europe
  • Training

European railways are developing at a very fast rate and the environment in which they operate today has become increasingly complex and competitive.

This development, imposed by new market regulations and strongly supported by national and international authorities, calls for specific adaptation on the part of railway companies.

It is their responsibility to adapt to the new landscape and, to this end, to provide their managers with the tools needed to meet the new challenges.

This constitutes a key challenge for the future of the railways.

Railway companies need competent, European minded managers who have a sharp awareness of the new context of the transport sector and its environment, extending beyond their areas of expertise, and who are able to identify the stakeholders involved.

Attending the SIAFI Europe is the opportunity to obtain a comprehensive overview of strategic issues for railways in Europe and is also an ideal platform for managers to discuss the “hot topics” of their area of work with colleagues from all European countries and all railway sectors, as well as to get a practical view of what international cooperation is about.

Both the important benchmarking opportunity within the European railway industry that the program offers and the active networking that fosters a truly European learning experience give us confidence in the value that this program can bring to both your staff and organization.
