15.00 DITECFER in collaboration with JU SHIFT2RAIL
Forum 1 
4th Forum DITECFER 'Innovative Solutions' under the TSI to the test of 'widespread' innovation in the Railway field
What happens when a "radical" innovation in the Railway sector requests modifications of the current specifications in order to enter the market? Should the innovation "stop" or can the specifications be amended? And if yes, what is the procedure to apply?
Very concrete questions we will answer in order to create awareness to Italian Innovative Companies: not only Companies operating in the Railway sector since longtime but even more startups and "outsiders" needing an important clarification on the issue.
We will mainly focus on the so-called "Innovative Solutions" in the TSI, the Technical Specifications for Interoperability defined at EU level. We will discuss about it together with the JU Shift2Rail that is promoting the major R&D activities in the Railway sector ever made in Europe, with the EU Agengy for Railways, the Italian National Agency for Railway Safety, the FSI Group, ASSIFER, CIFI and other key stakeholders.

The FORUM DITECFER aims to be helpful to the Italian Railway Industry through "more awareness" about the rules and their possible modifications.
