About the event

With the announcement that all new trains and signalling will be digital or digital ready from 2019 the pace of modernisation is set to increase dramatically. The Railway Industry Association working in conjunction with Network Rail and the University of Birmingham is hosting this event to explore what this will mean for the supply chain and examine the early plans for Digital Railway deployment in CP6.

The University of Birmingham will explain how it is supporting innovation in the rail sector and there will be networking activities to enable you to meet colleagues from Network Rail, the supply chain, rail operators and other key stakeholders from across the industry.

Attendees are encouraged to take part in the whole event and as a result, it will not be possible to book a place for a single day only.


Confirmed speakers at the event include:
Michael Flynn, Programme Director, Digital Railway
Martin Frobisher, Route Managing Director
Prof. Clive Roberts, Director, Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education
Philip Bennett and Martin Robinson, Network Rail Commercial Directors
Neil Robertson, Chief Executive, NSAR
Stuart Calvert, Director, Programme Technical Services and Supply Chain
