Using investment run-up strategically – to quickly realise a digital and expanded rail network
23 September 2020 at 2.00 – 3.30 p.m. CEST
In the summer of 2020 Germany reported an economic downturn of historic proportions. The coronavirus has infected the German economy. The economic situation will cause a foreseeable shortfall in state revenues, and short-term spending on economic stimulus packages will increase. At the same time promoting long-term investment is necessary to help ensure speedy relief in the overall economic situation. Railway projects play a key role in this context.
In our video talk we want to discuss how projects are prioritised, while weighing economic and capacity effects. What kind of investment strategies does the digitalisation of networks and operations require? How much construction and modernisation must the rail network be able to tolerate? How can processes and construction sites be optimised? These are the topics we want to discuss on the podium together with you and the experts.
This talk will take place in German. The English translation of the video talk will be available from 1 October.
