The World Congress on Railway Research is the world’s foremost international forum for the promotion, development and exchange of the latest innovations in the global rail industry. The international community of railway companies, researchers and other interested stakeholders will come together sharing experiences.

Railway research and innovation, that involve operators, infrastructure managers and industry planners, are not only related just to technical areas, but they also pervade all industrial and financial processes needed to build and offer train services to customers in a higher-capacity, better-performing and more cost-effective railway.

This is the aim we would pursue in this WCRR edition with its conference theme Railway Research and Innovation from Today Towards 2050. Stimulating all railway stakeholders to show and share what they do to innovate their activities targeting, to deliver a better-performing, more sustainable railway and more attractive for new and existing customers into two horizons: a long term vision and the next future.


The WCRR 2016 will take place in Milan, Italy, in the heart of Europe, a world tourist and business destination, becoming the biggest ever rail conference/exhibition hosted in the region, with 1000+ attendees from 30+ nations around the world, 200+ speakers, papers and proof of concept.
