CCRCC 2017 

Control Command and Railway Communication Conference

ERTMS is ready for Europe - overcoming the obstacles 

15-16 November 2017 
Valenciennes, Cité des Congrès 

With the Baseline 3 stable specifications, the experience from an expanding installed base, the joint commitments of the Memorandum of Understanding and the target European Deployment Plan, and the high level governance ensured by the Stakeholders Platform, ERTMS is truly ready to deliver European-wide compatible infrastructure and performant, reliable onboard technology. In synergy with the implementation of the 4th railway package this will pave the way to efficient authorisation for vehicles able to operate on the whole ERTMS-equipped network. 

The Conference will allow you to take stock of the important milestones the railway community reached together in the past two years since the last event, and to share the vision and plans for the next steps to ensure the successful deployment of the system as enshrined in the ERTMS Deployment Action Plan defined by the European Commission.  

You will hear from relevant speakers and debate together about lessons learned, successes and challenges to deploy an interoperable system, trends for future and the progress with the transition to the Fourth Railway Package. The conference will allow an open exchange of views on major implementation projects in Europe, the state of products and systems, their certification and authorization process, bringing together all involved actors in the rail sector.
