Guglielmo Marconi University was glad to sustain and join a great European initiative. Thanks to our Professor Romeo Giuliano the University hopped on the train Connecting Europe Express, stopped in Rome for one day. Connecting Europe Express travelled In 26 countries 40 railway partners 100 cities 20.000 kilometres to promote RAIL transport. The train started from Lisbon and arrived in Paris on 7 October. It has crisscrossed Europe to promote rail as a sustainable and innovative mode of transport. The aim was of encouraging the use of train by both people and freight, thus reducing the carbon footprint. The University strongly sustains the European rail sector’s challenges and goals, in academic path and in the research challenges. USGM is in fact a partner in the AB4RAIL project with the objective to investigate and assess the Adaptable Communication System (ACS) in terms of Alternative Bearers (left) and Communication Protocols (right) for railways applications. Through the identification and testing of possible alternative communication technologies AB4rail will support the rail as a sustainable and innovative mode of transport worldwide, thus contributing to the EU Green Deal goal.
