The 7th edition of the Italian Rail Expo “Italy’s Showcase for Railway Technology, Products and Systems” took place from Tuesday, October 3rd to Thursday, October 5th in Milan. FSR Transport Area Coordinator Nadia Bert attended on behalf of FSR.
In particular, FSR participated as a speaker at the Forum on “Innovative Solutions under the Technical Specifications for Interoperability to the test of widespread innovation in the railway field”, organised by the DITECFER, the Tuscan District for Rail Technologies, High Speed, Safety & Security.
What happens when a “radical” innovation in the railway sector requests modifications of the current specifications in order to enter the market? Should the innovation stop or should the specifications change? What is the procedure to apply? What is the experience of other sectors?
Carlo M. Borghini (Director of the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking), Renato Mazzoncini (CEO Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane), Gianvittorio Tavola (European Union Agency for Railways) and other key stakeholders addressed these very concrete questions in order to create awareness to Italian innovative companies – not only those companies operating in the railway sector since longtime but even more startups and ‘outsiders’.
