Final event invitation: Paris, 17 September 2019
PIVOT, Mat4Rail, Run2Rail and Fair Stations invite you to their joint final event that will take place on the 17th of September in Paris. These Shift2Rail Joint Technology Initiatives will present their developments performed within the “Innovation Programme 1: Cost-efficient and reliable trains, including high-capacity trains and high-speed trains” and “Innovation Programme 3: Cost-Efficient and Reliable High-Capacity Infrastructure”). The event will be hosted at SNCF (“Campus Wilson”, 9 rue Jean Philippe Rameau, 93200 La Plaine Saint- Denis).
The consortium members would like to invite you to attend the event and participate in the discussions which will benefit from your knowledge and expertise. The day will be split up into specific topics related to five Technology Demonstrators; TD1.3 The new generation of car body shells, TD1.4 Running Gear, TD1.5 New Braking Systems, TD1.6 Innovative Doors and TD1.7 Train Modularity in Use. Final results and achievements will be presented, poster sessions organized and technology demonstrators exhibited.

The poster presentation included a description and examination of a manufacturing approach for fiber reinforced polybenzoxazine in presence of fire retardant additives. Polybenzoxazine with phosphorous based organic fire retardant additive were formulated and used as matrix for basalt woven as reinforcement. The lightweight materials show high potential to fulfill hazard levels 2 and 3 for external and internal application and are therefore particularly suitable for high-end application in the railway industry.
The shared Mat4Rail outcomes and results were met with interest and feedback received was positive. The poster presented by Nick was nominated by the scientific committee for the best poster prize and won 3rd place of the approximately 72 posters presented on improving fire safety of polymeric materials. We would like to congratulate Nick, Anna and all partners involved in the research development in this field and on the positive outcome.”
