Topics: Green deal, international train connections, the fourth railway package, energy saving
Digitalisation is a much discussed topic. Developments are going very fast because of digitalisation, but this also generates challenges for the industry. How can we make ERTMS a real European interoperable digital system and which technologies can we expect to follow?
