Hit Rail ‘Interoperability in Practice’ Workshop shows the feasibility of interoperability

Brussels event sets out solutions and practical experience of interoperability projects in passenger & freight services and infrastructure

Greater understanding of a wide range of issues and outcomes facing the railway industry was fostered at last week’s “Interoperability in Practice” workshop. A number of practical examples of early implementation projects in passenger and freight services and infrastructure management were presented against a backdrop of information on new European Commission directives on interoperability.

Hosted by Hit Rail b.v., one of Europe’s leading players in the drive towards interoperability, and held at Belgian railway company SNCB’s headquarters, the event attracted over 50 attendees from railway organisations across Europe. Representatives from the European Commission’s transport directorate DG Move and from railway bodies such as CER (Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies), ERA (European Railway Agency) and Raildata also participated.
