REFINET Workshop (Bucharest, March 7, 2017)

A workshop was organised in Bucharest on March 7, 2017, with about 30 participants representing transport infrastructures (roads, railways and airports).

In the opening, FEHRL made a presentation on REFINET, FOX and USE-it CSAs. Then, REFINET Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) was presented by Tecnalia and REFINET Deployment of SIP by D’Appolonia with two cases studies in Italy and Romania, respectively.

The case study in Romania was commented through the geo-cluster tool developed in REFINET, with the participation of D’Appolonia, AFER (Autoritatea Feroviaria Romana) and CFR  (Romanian Railways).

During the afternoon, Arup, D’Appolonia, PTEC and Tecnalia coordinated two working groups where the participants examined and made contributions to the priorities on R&I in transport infrastructures, drafted within REFINET in four areas:

  • Urban mobility
  • Multimodal hubs
  • Long distance corridors
  • Systemic approach.

The final version of these documents will be presented at the REFINET conference within FIRM17 (Brussels, April 5, 2017).
