The National High Speed Rail LeaderShip Summit took place at San Jose California during the days 11,12,13th of September: Important members of the CHSRA and other honorable personalities of this sector speak in this Essential Event For the High Speed Rail in California, that was organized by the USHSR



 


ASSEMBLY MEMBERS FROM THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA VISITED SPAIN

 

A Delegation of Assembly Members from the State of Cailfornia, led by the President of the Transport Commission of the Assembly, visited Spain invited by the ICEX on July 18, 19 and 20. A selection of companies explained the details of the Spanish high speed railway(Auxitec, FCC, Sener, etc) in the offices of ICEX in Madrid and on the last day, they visited the HS Guadarrama tunnel (one of the most spectacular works of the world), and the city of Segovia. During the whole visit they were assited by Eurif.
The Californian delegation was formed by 10 relevant members of the state's transportation world, of which 6 were elected members of the California Assembly and members of the Sacramento-based transportation Commission.
One of the conclusions of this visit was that the geography of California and Spain have similar characteristics and this makes Spanish companies stronger candidates to participate in the California  HS project
The President of Eurif explained to them the 4 editions of HSTCalifornia that we have already done and they liked it a lot, giving to Eurif their support for future editions.

Eurif (European Railway Interoperability Institute) is a European non-profit association of engineers and architects for the promotion and dissemination of railway technologies. We are a  tool for the support of the European engineering outside Europe, improving the technological sector of the railways in this continent. The Institute can provide multidisciplinary support in the different areas of the engineering infrastructure, railways and facilities.

WHO WE ARE

EURIF is formed by a selected team of technical members that have agreements and collaborations with universities and companies alike. The need of specialization of the human teams, the singularity of the new systems and their relation with the external world, need of better solutions that can be found easily in organizations like the Institute.
