Roll2Rail Final Conference

17 October 2017

Roll2Rail Final Conference: Building the next generation of trains

The event  will be held on Tuesday, 17 October 2017 at the Sofitel Hotel, in Munich (Germany).

The Roll2Rail project aimed to develop key technologies and remove specific road blocks to radical innovation in the field of railway vehicles, as part of a longer-term strategy to revolutionize rolling stock for the future. The results, which will be presented at the Final Conference, will contribute to the overall objectives of Shift2Rail thanks to the increase of the operational reliability and to the reduction of the life cycle costs which have been achieved during the last 30 months.

Participants will be offered two technical visits in the afternoon as well as interactive sessions in the morning.
