Horizon Scanning at RSSB

In rail, horizon scanning can be used to identify opportunities and risks beyond the current control period, informing the rail industry’s long-term thinking and foresight. Following a recommendation from the 2016 Office of Rail and Road review of RSSB, we have strengthened our horizon scanning capability to ensure we can better support the rail industry in identifying and responding to future challenges and opportunities.

RSSB horizon scanning focusses on enablers, identifying technologies and other scientific developments which can speed-up and support the delivery of the Rail Technical Strategy and the other key cross-industry strategies. We are also increasingly looking at trends and disruptors to transport demand and rail competitiveness. 

The RSSB horizon scanning activities are led by Olivier Marteaux, delivered by the research team, and supported by technical experts from across RSSB and the wider industry including academia.
