This is the first in a series of podcasts entitled "Connecting the world of Railways, a conversation with…"brought to you by UIC. These podcasts will be recorded over the coming months and published on YouTube.

The interviewer of this first edition is Simon Fletcher, UIC Director Europe, and our guest is Gianluigi Castelli, former President of Ferrovie dello Stato, Associate Professor of Practice of Information Systems at SDA Bocconi School of Management and former Chair of UIC. Having served as Chairman since September 2018, the mandate of Mr Castelli came to an end at the 98th UIC General Assembly on 8 July 2021. The UIC thanks Mr Castelli for his involvement during his term as Chairman.

In this conversation, the topics discussed cover business recovery post-pandemic, digitalisation and a perspective of what the railways might look like in 5, 10 and 15 years’ time.

In further editions, we will invite a fascinating array of guests, including technical experts, and we will explore a wide range of topics, looking at the strengths and opportunities of the railways and how they will evolve in the future.

The next edition will be recorded after the summer break.
