The conference will be developed around the theme “How can standardisation help to evolve a sustainable railway”

About the conference

“How can Standardisation help to evolve a sustainable railway?”

Hosted online, the conference provides a chance to share experiences, successes and wins; as well as exchange best practices and stories to achieve sustainable mobility.

Sustainability has moved from a “nice to have” to a strategic imperative, consequently companies and authorities have evolved their approach.

  • How do UIC members address sustainable development challenges?
  • How does standardisation help?
  • How do Railways companies and industries use Standards to attain sustainable goals?
  • What standards are they?
  • What are their benefits?

All these subjects and more will be tackled by speakers from all over the world.
