The role of rail in the vision of the Green Deal​

Technologies and engineering to support major tunnels.



Factors influencing traffic scenarios​

2021 marks a key year for the strengthening of the transport sector, a year in which the commitment to the future of new generations can have a tangible effect. 

Environment, technologies and multimodality are the topics that will be discussed by the speakers during the Vision Rail sessions: three international webinars in which institutional representatives, national operators, entrepreneurs, academics and students will share experiences, best practices and goals. The common ambition is to make the rail the most effective and efficient solution for freight and passengers by 2030, the post-Covid-19 decade characterised by the European Green Deal.

For the organisers, the fundamental question of each seminar is: what initiative should be implemented to facilitate the modal shift from road to rail? During each event, they will answer, together with other guests, giving their personal opinion, and all the collected data will then become a publication: a white paper for EU rail transport.


SESSION THREE: 10.11.2021

Factors influencing traffic scenarios

Traffic scenarios depend on a number of factors: good technical functioning is certainly essential, but policies for rail operators are also needed to encourage a modal shift. Moreover, intermodal services and the creation of rail links with the core port hubs of the European network are the sine qua non for the future of rail.

SESSION TWO: 17.09.2021

Technologies and engineering to support major tunnels

For rail to become a viable alternative to road (in terms also of costs for operators and route managers), it must be able to guarantee increasingly high technological, safety, speed and capacity standards and, above all, long-lasting infrastructures following the example of the Fréjus railway tunnel, which is still operational after 150 years. The event will be held at the Accademia Albertina of Turin, an institution who has always celebrated the history of Frejus Tunnel.
