Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Are you ready for the weekend of your lifetime?

Have you ever participated in a competition whilst on a first class journey traveling around Europe?

Are you interested in learning more about rail and the major barriers that prevent innovation in the rail industry?

Welcome to HackTrain 4.0, where we run 48-hour technology marathons on moving trains A.K.A. hackathons.

To celebrate the success of our past 4 hackathons, we are spinning out a brand new theme for one of our trains this year - policy! We will be inviting 40 young economists, industry consultants and data scientists to come up with policy recommendations to address the major barriers to innovation and the general advancement of the industry.

Would you be able to help address the industry's biggest challenges?

Some of our challenges include:

  • How can you incorporate IoT devices into the smart train of the future?

  • Challenges regarding competition in the rail industry.

  • How to bridge the skills gap attracting new talent to the industry

  • Tweaking the franchising model to allow for innovation to thrive

  • Using Network Rail performance data to prevent enhancement projects from going over budgeting

The event will offer participants:

  • Networking opportunities with senior executives

  • An energetic and high energy weekend where you can meet other like minded and ambitious individuals.

  • Exposure to current industry issues and never before seen datasets.

To get a feel for the energy and ethos behind the event you can watch our official aftermovie of last year's HackTrain 3.0 when our train went to Paris and Lyon and then back to London!

The participants who are chosen for the policy train will be invited to our launch event in London before traveling to either Frankfurt or Bordeaux as part of the competition. The best part of all? All costs of travel, food and accommodation is covered by our sponsors.

Tickets are LIMITED to 40 so apply ASAP!

More details and a link to the application form can be found on our website.
