We are pleased to invite you to the Final Conference of the EURAXLES project (www.euraxles.eu), a key European project in the field of railway axle safety.

EURAXLES is a 3.5 year R&D project led by UNIFE – the Association of the European Rail Industry – uniting 23 partners across Europe and co-funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development.

This final event will be the occasion to present the main results and achievements of the project in relation to new approaches to axle design, improved axle protection against corrosion, alternative coating solutions, as well as results of investigation in NDT inspection methods.

The agenda for the event will be communicated to confirmed participants.

The event is free of charge. To register, please send an email to Léa Paties: lea.paties@unife.org by 11 April 2014.
