UIC Trainrail Hackathon - November 2021


How can railways be resilient in the face of pandemics?

As part of a series of attractiveness measures targeted at universities and railway undertakings, the UIC is launching its first global Rail Hackathon.

This Hackathon offers participants and rail enthusiasts the opportunity to imagine the future and develop solutions for railway operators to better face pandemic situations. The solutions sought can be applied in the various sectors of activity of these companies. The hackathon will include various themes and activities, such as: training, customer service on board trains and in stations, maintenance workshops, management of suspicious cases, communication and information, etc.

A European regional “competition” will be held in 2021 (it will be jointly organised with the ASTONRail project team and outreach activities in Zilina), with a final contest at international level in May 2022, in the frame of the World Congress about Rail Training, Talent and Development (WCRT).
