Reshaping our railways post-pandemic: Research with an impact


Call for Papers

WCRR aims to promote the tangible value of railway research and the benefits that international collaboration brings to research activities. If you are a rail professional or researcher, this is an excellent opportunity to raise your profile within the global research and innovation community, and to share your work with international experts.

Tangible impact and knowledge sharing will be key factors that will inform the selection of papers.
