Dear Colleague/Participant, 

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the  ASTONRail project Final Conference, which will be held at KTH in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday 20th of June, 2023. The ASTONRail project established a strategic partnership to work collectively towards innovation in rail higher education provision. This very impactfulErasmus+funded project will change the way rail higher education is delivered and will develop a ‘first of a kind’ educational standard for rail skills development. Currently, the ASTONRail team is working on the ASTONRail handbook, which will be presented in the project final conference in Stockholm on 20 June. 

Your contribution as a railway expert and stakeholder will be very important for the Conference Plenary Sessions and Round Tables. We would like to hear about your own perspective (and possibly the one of your employer) with regards to rail skills development, rail training, current and future rail higher education provision and how to make the railway sector more attractive to young professionals and early careers. Topics of interest include innovative approaches to rail skills development, effective teaching and learning methods, setting up new standards for rail training, rail education, rail focussed qualifications, life-long learning for rail, transfer of talents to the railway sector, career progression in a rail company, talent recruitment and retention, collaboration with and between stakeholders, and more.

We look froward to welcoming you to the  ASTONRail project  Final Conference, at KTH in Stockholm on 20 June. 

Best Regards

The ASTONRail team
