Next-Gen Rail: Building the workforce of tomorrow for the rail sector

01 February 2024


To help Europe achieve both its Green Deal and digitalisation ambitions, it needs rail.
What Rails needs to welcome the next generation to the industry, is to create pathways for the younger generation to not only fill future roles but also equip them with the skills they need to succeed.


As a new generation is on the verge of entering the industry, we need to address the rail sector’s skills shortage, on March 27th, 2024, UNIFE will host NEXT - GEN RAIL: Building The Workforce of Tomorrow For the Rail Sector.

This conference will bring together EU Commission representatives, Members of the European Parliament, Member State representatives, Rail Industry Executives, Policymakers, and HR & Talent experts.
UNIFE aims to enable a platform to inform, guide, and chart a way forward for how the rail industry and policymakers can unite in creating the jobs of tomorrow.

From defending Europe from cyber threats to critical rail infrastructure, and building the high-speed rail systems which connect the continent, attendees will discuss the talent profiles and educational pathways that are needed by the industry.

The program will address common goals, funding opportunities, and addressing diversity and gender challenges, alongside engaging with the ongoing ERASMUS+ STAFFER Program.
