For the third time, UIC is organising, via the Digital Platform, the UIC Digital Days. This important digital event will take place from 3 – 4 October 2019 at Paris UIC headquarters.

The event will be the opportunity to discover the latest trends that are already influencing the future of rail and have to be considered as the enablers to achieve our digital transformation.
It refers to major issues such as big data, digital modelling, digital twin, telecoms, and so on. The impact will be felt throughout the whole of the rail sector.

Influential actors and decision-makers will take part in delivering keynotes or exchange in breakout sessions.

This outstanding event is being organised in cooperation with MERMEC as Platinum Sponsor, who summarise the event in the following words:

Digital experience. Analytics. IoT. Cyber Security. Artificial Intelligence. These powerful forces are proving to be far more than a trend by rapidly evolving from promising innovations and novel approaches into full-fledged solutions for railways’ operations, maintenance & renewal, passenger and freight services. Today, these forces are demonstrating their disruptive potential and are considered foundational components not only of railway’s technological infrastructure, but of corporate strategy. Let’s make the point of the situation on how railways are embracing these state-of-the-art technologies to achieve competitive advantage, and stay ahead of the game by sensing future innovations and possibilities.
