NewRail exhibition at InnoTrans featuring SPECTRUM

InnotransscaledNewRail will have a stand at the INNOTRANS exhibition in Berlin from 18-21 September 2012. See the INNOTRANS website.

The focus of our stand at INNOTRANS 2012 will be the work of the Rail Freight and Logistics group and will include dissemination of the SPECTRUM project: research is into the development of a competitive, efficient, reliable and above all sustainable freight transport system. This can be achieved through intermodal and co-modal means in line with the aims of the EU White Paper 2011 (to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector by at least 60% by 2050 and to shift 30% of road freight over 300km to sustainable modes such as rail by 2030). See our schedule of presentations here.

SPECTRUM Second Full Consortium Meeting

Gap Analysis WorkshopThe SPECTRUM project is now into its second year, signalling the second SPECTRUM full consortium meeting! The two day meeting which included a GAP analysis workshop was held in Hungarian capital and historic city of Budapest on June 13th and 14th.

The meeting was deliberately held at such a time to coincide with the RETRACK final conference held over the previous two days at which many SPECTRUM partners were present.

It was the majestic Marble Hall of the Szechenyi Baths that played host to both the day 1 full consortium meeting and the GAP analysis held on day 2.

The event was attended by close to forty delegates from across Europe and included a range of system manufacturers, consultants, infrastructure managers and academics. The event also saw the inaugural SPECTRUM advisory board meeting.
