The RoCK Final Conference will be devided into three distinct parts:

Part 1 ‘The importance of international rail connections’:

Main speakers like Michael Cramer will explain with their specific expertise and perspective what the significance of international rail connections is. This part will also include a short introduction into the RoCK project.

Part 2 ‘RoCK Theses in Practice’:

We will present a number of concepts that in our opinion are important to realise more and better rail connections across borders in Europe. Each of the general concepts has been realised and will be presented by members of the RoCK partnership

Part 3 ‘The impact of RoCK Theses on future rail services’:

The third part of our event will be dedicated to understand the impact of these concepts on different aspects of rail operations. In small groups we will be able to understand how we can apply these concepts. How would we work together applying these principles to realise international rail services. What are the quick wins? What are the enablers?
