Improving and Enhancing your Rail Knowledge: SPARK and the Rail Knowledge Bank

29 November 2022 - Online


Rail industry knowledge is perpetually created through channels such as research endeavours, teaching materials, conference presentations and webinars. When effectively catalogued and stored, these artefacts offer the potential of fast-tracking industry best practice. The limiting factor in releasing these benefits is often the lack of accessibility to the knowledge through limited awareness or an inability to effectively navigate the search engine interfaces.

Join this fast-paced webinar that will improve your knowledge accessibility to the UK’s Rail Safety and Standards Board SPARK database and the Australasian Centre for Rail Innovation’s Rail Knowledge Bank.
