The second level of the Training on High Speed Systems will take place in Madrid from 13 – 17 November 2017, jointly organised by UIC, the Worldwide Railway Organisation, and FFE, the Fundación de Ferrocarriles Españoles (Spanish Railway Foundation).

This programme is aimed at professionals already involved in any of the processes of HSR or who will do so in the near future, whether working for railway companies or ministries, local authorities, universities, advisory bodies, agencies or associations: managers, strategy experts, decision-makers, economists, banks, industry, engineers...

Seminar participants do not need to have in-depth knowledge of any specific subject relating to HSR and previous attendance to THSS-Level 1 is recommended but not necessary.

The main objectives of the training are to:

  • Offer in-depth and comprehensive insight into the High-Speed System
  • Provide managers with all the information needed to facilitate decision-making about HSR
  • Definition on path/way to implement a HSR
  • Foster exchanges of experiences and information about the latest developments in the field
  • Visit strategic points on the Spanish High-Speed System and discuss them on-site

This training will allow the participants to attend lectures delivered by high level experts in the field of High Speed Systems, who will give them a 360-degree approach to High Speed Railway Systems, as well as discuss their knowledge with other participants.

During the training, and on an alternating basis with the different theoretical sessions, students will be divided into groups to develop and discuss a real example of a project by assuming a particular role regarding the planning of a High Speed System. To that aim they will have the help of the High Speed Planner, a didactical tool especially designed for the II level of the UIC High Speed Training.

A visit to the strategic points on the Spanish High-Speed System and discussing them on-site is also another special strength of this unique training.
