logo czarne anniversary

The Workshop on Rail Technology is an international event held to let the students and young scientists interested in railway technology to network, exchange experience and learn more about the rolling stock and the railway industry. The Workshop on Rail Technology has a relatively long tradition. Since 2009 it was organized annually either by Poznan University of Technology (PUT) or Technical University of Berlin (TUB). Due to the success of the workshop, in 2016 Delft University of Technology was also invited to extend the event even further!

This year the Workshop will be held in Poznan during the period of 17-23.11.2019, which means that the participants will get extra time to network and integrate during the 10th edition of the event.

More information to be announced soon!

Interested to sign up? Contact your local coordinator.
