RRUKA Banner

Do you use, carry out or fund rail research?

If so, you need to join us for the 6th RRUKA Annual Conference. Taking place for one day in London, this conference provides a central focal point and forum for discussion between individuals and groups with a key part to play in the commission, delivery and implementation of rail research.

Throughout the day, we will provide insights into current research activities, explain which universities do what in rail, get to grips with the research priorities for different industry stakeholders and stimulate discussion to build relationships which will ultimately lead to the provision of novel solutions.

The conference is free to attend and will include presentations in different formats, interactive ways to share your thoughts and our blue sky village exhibition – featuring interactive demonstrators, models and opportunities to speak to those involved firsthand.

Visit the event page for more information and register now.

Deadline for registration: Friday 3 November
