The International Collaborative Research Initiative (ICRI) on RCF and Wear is pleased to announce that an ICRI workshop is planned for April 26th to 28th, 2022, in Ottawa, Canada. The workshop aims to bring together researchers, suppliers and railways for practical discussions on topics having significant cost and safety implications for the railway industry.

The main goals of the conference are to:

  • Review on-going ICRI efforts and obtain immediate peer feedback on current projects and future plans
  • Promote research collaboration by bringing “end users” together with research and technology providers
  • Provide a sharing and learning environment for all participants, discuss best practices and broaden perspectives.
  • Identify and prioritize gaps in understanding and research needs and develop plans for advancing the subjects of RCF and wear, vehicle/track interaction, safety and economics.
