About this Research Topic
‘UK-Japan Symposium on Highspeed Rails’ will address one of the most pressing issues in the U.K. High speed rail systems make significant difference to the public and provide positive contribution towards the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the communities they serve. They exist to provide social and economic connections, and people quickly take up the opportunities offered by increased mobility. Globally, high speed rails have proven to be the essential catalyst for regional growth and enhanced the quality of everyday life. This symposium thus presents a great opportunity for the UK industry to access to extensive expertise from the pioneers in highspeed rails. This Research Topic will capture the knowledge and experience in highspeed rail from the speakers and also general audiences.
The Research Topic involves a wide coverage of timely issues on technologies and innovations focusing on broad aspects of highspeed rails in order to address global grand challenges and UN’s sustainable development goals with great social and economic importance.
