06/02/2018

CIT UPC participated in the symposium ‘Unlocking Health Benefits from Railway Mobility’, organized by the Health Tech  and Railgrup clusters, in collaboration with ACCIÓ. The session was held as part of the Health and Rail intercluster project, whose aim is to identify health technologies that can be applied to rail mobility.

Over 20 aspects were discussed during the session, which had previously been identified as areas in which health technologies could provide answers to some of the needs of rail agents. At the start of the symposium, Pere Clavet, the director of the Union Internationale des Transports Publics (UITP), presented his perspective of the importance and potential impact of applying linked technologies in both sectors.
