- Sector: Education
- Country location: Australia, China
- Grantee: Monash University through its Institute of Railway Technology
Australian based Monash University’s Institute of Railway Technology (IRT) in collaboration with Hong Kong’s MTR Corporation will deliver Workshops on cutting edge railway technologies.
IRT has an established track record in solving railway-related technical issues, and railway owners and operators throughout the world adopt its solutions. This collaboration will expand the existing bilateral engagements to create networks bringing together counterparts in governments, the railway industry and other institutions who are delivering and maintaining major rail infrastructure in both countries.
The project presents an opportunity to profile expertise from Australia and that of Hong Kong and mainland China, through planned activities to heighten awareness on the new technologies that are available to support the emerging needs of mass transport railway systems.
