High Speed Rail: Education Interchange 2020
Virtual event: 14 – 16 December 2020
The key question addressed by the conference High Speed Rail: Education Interchange (HSR:EI) is how research and education can continue to support the development of HSR, to widen the revolution in mobility and decarbonise transport systems globally and in the UK. Despite the current transport paralysis due to Covid-19, High Speed Rail Projects are progressing in many parts of the world, including the HS2 project in the UK, demonstrating the vital importance of High Speed Rail (HSR) as a future transport mode.
Delegates will share knowledge on current research, initiatives, innovations and best practice and international knowledge transfer drawing on their experiences. They will discuss the challenges facing project sponsors, universities, railway businesses and the wider supply industry, and opportunities for collaboration.
This exciting conference will include keynote speeches from industry leaders, paper and poster presentations, panel discussions and networking to explore the variety of issues, beneficial relationships and future opportunities that arise between the HSR and Educational sectors.
