Chief patron of the conference:

László MOSÓCZI, Secretary of State for Transport (Ministry of Innovation and Technology – ITM)

InnoRail Budapest is a series of professional conferences for the railway industry organised biannually in the Hungarian capital. The conference was created by Hungarian professionals committed to rail transport with the aim of a joint reflection about the present and future development of rail transport.

InnoRail has already grown into an acknowledged forum for exchanging views between the various fields of the industry and for discussing practical issues, as well as for presenting innovative developments, tools and methods.

We cordially invite you to participate in InnoRail 2019, the fourth event in a series of railway innovation conferences.

Creation of a safe, modern and integrated railway network that renders rail transport more competitive remains at the top of the European Union’s agenda. In several regions including Hungary development of railway infrastructure is progressing at a pace unheard-of for a long time. Generation change is occurring for track technology, train control and vehicle systems.

Increasing the utilisation of railways entails additional tasks for rail professionals throughout Europe, thus further development efforts are necessary for the environment-friendly railway industry to become more competitive, decreasing the strain on public roads as railways efficiently serve as the backbone of public transport. These objectives are now backed by funds of a magnitude never seen before.

With this European railway innovation conference we intend to contribute towards an efficient use of these considerable resources.

Official conference languages: English, Hungarian and (for the first time) German.

The first conference day features plenary sessions while on the other two days parallel section meetings will take place on INFRASTRUCTURE and ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS IN TRACTION.

Conference programme structure:

  • Directions of transport policy; strategies, regulatory environment and financial issues in rail infrastructure development
  • Track structure, construction, maintenance and operation of railway networks
  • Intelligent solutions in rail infrastructure
  • Risks, safety and reliability in the operation of rail infrastructure
  • Intelligent solutions in passenger services
  • Environmental awareness in traction: modern energy supply and drive systems

Infrastructure and vehicle operators and their industry partners, researchers, designers, theoretical and practical experts are most welcome to the conference.

See You soon in Budapest!
