BRAIN-TRAINS - Final Event

BRAIN-TRAINS deals with rail freight intermodality.

The BRAIN-TRAINS research consortium kindly invites you to its final, public workshop, to be held on 30 August 2018 PM in Brussels. Participation is free-of-charge, but requires registration. Federal Belgian Minister of Mobility François Bellot will close the afternoon with a number of reflections on how the results will be taken up in policy.

BRAIN-TRAINS deals with rail freight intermodality, and the extent to which it can be made successful, under market, society and policy-making challenges, and analyzing how intermodality contributes to answering these challenges. Starting point is the relative weak usage of this type of transport. The case application selected is that of Belgium.

BRAIN-TRAINS achieves this objective by innovative and interdisciplinary research and development, combined with practical testing via future development scenarios, dealing mainly with five research domains: operational cost modeling, socio-economic impact analysis, environmental impact assessment, regulatory framework testing, and governance framework development.

On the 30 August workshop in Brussels, the final scenario results and policy recommendations will be presented. Equally, during subsequent separate break-out sessions, the participants will get the opportunity to get acquainted with the details of and share their views on the scenario findings and recommendations. Discussion will be held with other scientists, sector operators, users and policy makers. Participants to the workshop will get first-hand project results.

Participants are required to register by 10 July through the event web page. The full program as well as location and directions are available also online. A sandwich lunch and a closing drink will be provided free of charge. Places are limited, so register quickly.
