Organised jointly by the European Railway Agency (ERA) and the European University Insitute (EUI), this conference explores the regulatory context of the digitalisation of railways, which bears a lot of promise to make railways more customer-friendly, comfortable, affordable, and competitive.
By removing regulatory barriers, better access to operational data and rules shall be granted, thus creating new business opportunities.
A selected group of participants, including railway operators, infrastructure managers, lessors, manufacturers, IT specialists, National Safety Authorities, academia and passengers’ associations will debate on business needs, regulatory issues, societal trends and financial aspects linked to railway digitalisation.
