High Performing Flexible Railway Systems for the Future, a joint institution seminar with IRSE, IET, IMechE, PWI, IRO and RIA – Batch 2 release
13 Oct 2021 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Section: Organised by the joint institutions and RIA (please see http://www.highperformingrailways.com/)

High Performing Flexible Railway Systems for the Future
2 days: 6 industry leaders

Live seminar over 2 days.

The need to provide high performing railway systems has never been greater. While the outlook for the rail sector is bright, it faces many real threats in the post COVID era.
This autumn, 5 major institutions (IRSE, IET, IMechE, PWI and IRO) and the Railway Industry Association (RIA) are bringing together expert speakers from across engineering and operational disciplines to present a vision of "high performing flexible railway systems for the future".
The seminar will cover factors spanning the operational and engineering disciplines, focusing on how the contribute to increasing capacity, reliability, flexibility and resilience, while delivering the high quality of service that customers demand.
Speakers will set out:

  • how technical solutions can empower operators to deliver a resilient service and provide them with the data needed to respond optimally to issues and changes, cascading live information to those who need it;
  • how systems are designed to maximise the capacity and reliability of our infrastructure and the tools that can be used to predict and prevent failures before impacting operations;
  • how railways respond to urgent challenges such as climate change adaption and decarbonisation as well as the need to radically reduce the exposure of railway infrastructure workers to hazards while shifting to 7-day operations.

Online and international - Wednesday 13 October and Wednesday 3 November 2021
The seminar will include recorded online content for delegates to view ahead of each of two live seminar sessions (each of duration 90 minutes including questions and answers).
Part 1: View four hours of pre-recorded online content from 22 September ready for the live session on 13 October 2021 09:00-10:30 (UK time).
Part 2: View four hours of pre-recorded online content from 3 October ready for the live session on 3 November 2021 09:00-10:30 (UK time).
