InnoTrans Convention

September 19, 2018

2.00 p.m. - 4.00 p.m.

CityCube Berlin, Level 3, M8

Organiser: German Research Association for Tunnels and Transportation Facilities (STUVA)

A modern, high-performance transport infrastructure is among the keys to ensuring a country’s long-term competitiveness and contributes significantly to the quality of life. Forecasts predict that in the future mobility needs will continue to increase. That is why, with the introduction of its latest Federal Transport Plan, the German government has earmarked around 270 billion euros until 2030 for maintenance and new transport infrastructure projects.

The forum examines the impact that implementing the transport plan has on tunnel construction and the long-term challenges that lie ahead. Transport infrastructure investment must occur in areas where people and industry will benefit most. In the current environment, what is a reliable transport infrastructure based on and what are the actual plans for spending these sums? What has to happen in order to maintain the current high standard of a business location’s infrastructure?

Moderation: Dr.-Ing. Roland Leucker, Managing Director, STUVA eV.
