Due to the current events in Ukraine, TU Wien is helping Ukrainian scientists who are completing a guest research stay at TU Wien as part of a special programme. Since the Research Unit of Trackbound Transportation Systems is also participating, our colleague Olena Kaliuzhna and our colleague Markus Lagler were invited by Vice Rector Kurt Matyas to a get-together with other participants in order to get to know each other and exchange ideas in a relaxed setting. For more information, see https://www.tuwien.at/tu-wien/aktuelles/news/news/ukrainehilfe-das-haben-wir-bereits-erreicht, opens an external URL in a new window.
The Research Unit of Trackbound Transportation Systems would like to thank Vice-Rector Matyas and Ms Madsen (Human Resources Development) for their support and for organising the get-together. We hope that this will result in a deeper cooperation between our research area and the Ukrainian State Railway Transport University in Kharkiv, as the future questions in railway systems have to be answered mainly through international cooperation (interoperability).
