On 4th July 2016 the EC DG MOVE organizes a workshop on Transport Rail Security in Bruxelles. The workshop will be mainly focused on three elements: understanding and definition of the issues related to transport rail security, subsidiarity and EU dimension of the problem and finally possible mitigating security actions and their likely impacts.
Indeed, one of the main transport-related achievements of the European Union regards the railway safety and the construction of a trans-European rail network. However, nowadays there is not a sufficient effort about another relevant topic: the railway security. In this context, the lack of security measures represents a European weakness also considering the recent increase of terrorist attacks against rail transport.
The location of the event is the Albert Borschette Conference Centre, rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels.
The workshop will be open to a limited number of participants so it is important to send the application before 28th June 2017 to MOVE-EU-LANDSEC@ec.europa.eu.
The workshop’s agenda, information and application form are available on https://ec.europa.eu/transport/sites/transport/files/2017-07-04-workshop-passenger-rail-security.pdf.
