Do you use, carry out or fund rail research?

If so, you need to attend the 6th RRUKA Annual Conference. Taking place for one day in London, this conference provides a central focal point and forum for discussion between individuals and groups with a key part to play in the commission, delivery and implementation of rail research.

  • Network…with those championing and undertaking rail research
  • Learn…about cutting edge rail research currently underway
  • Share…your challenges, research needs and thoughts
  • Meet…our members, our team and the individuals who could help deliver the rail industry vision

Throughout the day, we will provide insights into current research activities, explain which universities do what in rail, get to grips with the research priorities for different industry stakeholders and stimulate discussion to build relationships which will ultimately lead to the provision of novel solutions.

The conference is free to attend and will include presentations in different formats, interactive ways to share your thoughts and our blue sky village exhibition – featuring interactive demonstrators, models and opportunities to speak to those involved first-hand.

Annual Member Accountability Event - 21 November 2017

You are cordially invited to attend the 2017 RSSB Annual Member Accountability Meeting to be held at 1100hrs on Tuesday 21 November 2017 at The Helicon, London. The meeting will close at 13:00 with lunch provided from 12:30 onwards.

This new meeting is a direct response to the 2016 ORR Review Report of RSSB External link and your request for more RSSB Board accountability to the membership. The RSSB Board want to use this meeting to demonstrate what RSSB has delivered to our members during the course of 2016-17, how the company is changing to become more responsive to your needs, and what our headline delivery priorities for 2017-18 will be. There will be opportunities for you to provide feedback and also to meet RSSB Board members, both those that represent your sector of the industry and those who provide the non-industry input. The meeting will conclude with the official business of the AGM, normally a very brief and formal event. 

This is a new approach to the AGM and another step toward implementing the New Settlement arrangements between RSSB and our members, which we consulted you about in March 2017 and which forms the basis of the 2017-18 Business Plan

The meeting has been arranged for the same day as the Rail Delivery Group sponsored Industry Health and Safety Meeting (also being held at RSSB) for efficiency. This invitation has been sent to our member MDs and CEOs, as well as those in each member organisation who are the duly authorised representative to receive the official Notice of the meeting. 

Formal notice of the AGM will be disseminated soon. However, we would be grateful if you would confirm your attendance at this much broader meeting as soon as possible, so we can plan accordingly.
