SIAFInternational 2012 (Interactive Sessions on International Railway Activities)

(Paris, UIC headquarters, Paris, 21-25 May 2012 / 22-26 October 2012)

  • SIAFI
  • Expertise Development

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

Attending the SIAFInternational is the opportunity to obtain a comprehensive overview of strategic issues for railways and is also an ideal platform for promising young managers to discuss the “hot topics” of their area of work with colleagues from all countries and all railway sectors.

The team work carried out throughout the training, combined with formal sessions on the management of international projects and the intercultural dimension constitute an essential part of the training.
Both the important benchmarking opportunity within the railway industry that the programme offers and the active networking that fosters a truly global learning experience give us confidence in the value that this program can bring to your organisation.
