The Czech Republic will host the 7th edition of the International Rail Transport Forum and Conference (IRFC 2022) in the next few days (5-7 October 2022), bringing together leading representatives of the European rail sector, the political scene, and academia. RAILTARGET is a media partner of the event, and you can look forward to a series of interviews and live coverage of the conference.

The patronage of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU allows OLTIS Group to organize an event of significant international dimension and to attract several leading personalities not only from the railway sector itself but also from the ranks of politicians and academia. In addition to the distinguished guests, a major benefit of IRFC 2022 will be the promotion of international and global cooperation, specifically East-West and Europe-Asia connections.

This year's conference will focus on innovative technologies and practical examples in the rail freight transport and logistics market in Europe and Asia. You can thus look forward to the participation of the most important European and Asian manufacturers, intermodal operators, and freight forwarders who will present their solutions, products, and services. It follows the previous successful IRFC 2017 event, which saw 240 attendees from 27 countries, including 46 senior representatives from leading rail companies and organizations. Speakers then included leading representatives from the European Commission, European Ministries of Transport, the European Railway Agency (CER), and the European Railway Community (ERA).

The RAILTARGET editorial team has brought you, our readers, a series of articles on the IRCF 2022 conference. In the first one, we introduced the event and informed you about the two thematic sessions - the first one (rail and its role in the Green Deal) and the third one (EU research and innovation in a globalized world). The following article covered the second section of IRFC 2022, which focuses on standardization and interoperability. The next in the series described the details of the fourth session dealing with VRT issues. And the last one provided information in the fifth section. Here, TEN-T will be discussed.

So you can look forward to a prominent event with a range of topics on current challenges and trends in rail. RAILTARGET's editorial team will be at the heart of it as a media partner and provide you with exclusive coverage of the conference.
