2nd UIC World Conference on Standardisation will be held on 9 June 2015 in Paris

  • Standardisation

The UIC Standardisation Platform is organising the 2nd UIC World Conference on Railway Standardisation, which will be held on 9 June 2015 at Paris UIC HQ.

The 2nd UIC World Conference on Railway Standardisation is intended to be a working session to discuss and debate strategies and actions to achieve integration of the rail system through convergence of standards.

This event brings together the different families of stakeholders within the sector – railway operating companies, manufacturers, global standardisation organisations, research centres, institutions and associations.

Following high-level keynote opening speeches, four sessions with a number of presentations will develop a logical path through the tactical and strategic approach to standardisation in the years to come.

The concept of progressive integration is the leitmotif around which collaborative working will take place, and the conference will offer wide-ranging opportunities for lively discussion of participants’ contributions.
