During the training, and on an alternating basis with the different theoretical sessions, students will be divided into groups of a maximum of 5 students led by a teachersupervisor, and will develop and discuss a real example of a High Speed project. Each group will assume a particular role regarding the planning of a High Speed System. To that aim they will have the help of the High Speed Planner, a didactical tool especially designed for the II level of the UIC High Speed Training.
This practical exercise will include all the steps to accomplish, to define and to plan a real High Speed project, from the beginning of the process up to the final configuration of basic parameters and many actions to implement. A presentation and final common discussion will be held at the end of the training.
After the setting-up of the groups, each one will develop the different consecutive parts. At the end, a plenary discussion will compare the different solutions reached.
The speakers are all specialists in the subjects addressed and are drawn mainly from railways, universities and industry.
