UIC nextstation Conference

General context

Railway stations are usually considered from three perspectives: customer access to trains, business opportunities due to a high concentration of people every day, and interaction with the city and other transport modes.

UIC nextstation gathers professionals, local authorities, researchers and other relevant stakeholders from around the world.

Upcoming event

Following the success of the first six events held in Rome, Paris, Brussels, Moscow, Marrakech and Madrid, the International Union of Railways (UIC), in close cooperation with Iranian Railways (RAI), is organising the 7th UIC nextstation conference, which will focus on “the railway station boosting the city”, in Tehran, Iran from 11 to 13 November 2019.


Previous conference

UIC and ADIF worked in close partnership to organise the sixth UIC nextstation event with the theme of “smart solutions for railway stations”.

  • Solutions for integrated mobility (1 & 2)
  • Security and privacy
