Event Description:

High speed rail is not just a single area of expertise, but a complex system combining wide-ranging technical fields such as infrastructure, rolling stock and operations with cross-disciplinary issues such as finance, business, management, communication and training, each at its highest level. The decision to build a high speed system and how to implement it is complex due to numerous parameters, different potential combinations and the variety of stakeholders involved. In order to answer all these questions and satisfy the many requests for comprehensive and unbiased information on the subject made by its own members as well as consultancy firms, ministries, railway companies, etc., in 2004 UIC launched a special course, Training on High Speed Systems (THSS). Since 2004 more than 500 students have taken an active part in these sessions organized on an annual basis to learn more and share their experience with us (UIC members). The 13th session of THSS Level I is to be held in April 2017 in Paris. You will find here-after more detailed information on this innovative and unique training session.

UIC members’ cooperation helps ensure that every year around 50 participants interact with more than 40 high level speakers during a week-long session reviewing in detail all the components of a High Speed Rail (HSR) System. The training targeted at professionals who wish to be given a comprehensive overview of HSR and is held every year at two different levels.


Give a global vision on HSR to experts on some particular elements of the system

  • Provide managers with all the information needed to facilitate decision-making on the subject of HSR
  • Definition on path/way to implement a HSR
  • Foster exchanges of experiences and information about the latest developments in the field


This program is aimed at professionals already involved in any of the processes of HSR or who intend to do so in the near future, whether working for railway companies or ministries, local authorities, universities, advisory bodies, agencies or associations: managers, strategy experts, decisionmakers, economists, banks, industry, engineers…
