Catch the Train Webinar 3 14th June 9:30-11:00 BST/10:30-12:00 CEST

Our partners the Department for International Trade will be hosting the third event of their Catch the Train webinar series. Railways form the backbone of our low carbon system of transport infrastructure. Much of the European network is near, or at capacity, and the railways are facing a comprehensive digital transformation.

In the next decade, the GSM-R network will be replaced by Future Railway Mobile Communication System, and the European railway industry needs modern forms of signalling and train control. The railways need new innovative solutions to unlock capacity, boost performance, improve safety and enhance the passenger experience.

Join the event here to learn from new opportunities for developing services and transforming the digital railways of the future.
