Railway know-how and knowledge have evolved in such a way that it now requires framing and adapting to domestic needs. It is therefore important to improve and upskill competences, for instance as to master degree and PhD level, namely as to specific issues relating to engineering of transport systems.
The rail sector will be technological more complex, more automated and managed by less specialists, yet by ever more qualified people. Likewise, innovation backed by non-corporate entities within the SI&I, will have a direct impact on the technical staff involved in producing, installing, operating and maintaining new solutions and services. New knowledge and skills will be needed to take advantage of the benefits brought about by the technological capabilities either existing or emerging.
Key actions of the project:
- To develop and launch a knowledge management platform;
- To develop and adapt the syllabus for master degrees and PhD levels;
- To assist in developing advanced training diplomas in the railway issues;
- To conduct training in emerging technologies;
- To set up an observatory for the sciences and technologies with an impact on the rail sector.
