It is a major gathering for engineers and researchers as well as for executives and managers to exchange ideas. Besides that, it is also a great opportunity to present the technology of your organisation to railway experts from around the world.
The theme for the 2019 WCRR is “Railway Research to enhance the customer experience”.
This edition of the WCRR will be hosted by the JR Rail Technical Research Institute, while the members of the supporting Organising and Executive Committees consist of representatives of the AAR – Association of American Railroads, TTCI, DB, RSSB, SNCF, JR RTRI, Trenitalia and UIC.
