The UK has seen an unprecedented level of investment in recent years to modernise and future-proof our railway network.

Electrification is at the heart of these upgrades, offering faster, cheaper and cleaner travel, necessary if the UK network is to meet the rising demand for rail travel.

REIS 2019 offers four days of expert training in the core areas of electrification systems, engineering, project management and design, whilst providing first hand insights into real-world case studies from an international programme of speakers with experience of working on railway systems across the world.
