In the summer of 2020 Germany reported an economic downturn of historic proportions. The coronavirus has infected the German economy. The economic situation will cause a foreseeable shortfall in state revenues, and short-term spending on economic stimulus packages will increase. At the same time promoting long-term investment is necessary to help ensure speedy relief in the overall economic situation. Railway projects play a key role in this context.

In our video talk we want to discuss how projects are prioritised, while weighing economic and capacity effects. What kind of investment strategies does the digitalisation of networks and operations require? How much construction and modernisation must the rail network be able to tolerate? How can processes and construction sites be optimised? These are the topics we want to discuss on the podium together with you and the experts.

You can find the programme here.

Language: German
The English translation of the video talk will be available from 1 October.

DVF | Investitionen planvoll und zügig umsetzen - für ein digitales und erweitertes Schienennetz

Deutschland meldet im Sommer 2020 einen historischen Konjunktureinbruch. Der Coronavirus hat die deutsche Volkswirtschaft infiziert. Aufgrund der wirtschaftlichen Situation werden absehbar staatliche Einnahmen fehlen und kurzfristige Ausgaben für Konjunkturspritzen ansteigen. Gleichermaßen müssen langfristige Investitionen bereits heute angestoßen werden, damit sie zur Entlastung des Klimas frühzeitig beitragen können. Den Schienenprojekten kommt hier eine Schlüsselrolle zu.

Wie werden Projekte zwischen Konjunktur- und Kapazitätswirkung priorisiert? Welche Investitionsstrategie erfordert die Digitalisierung von Netz und Betrieb? Wieviel Bau und Modernisierung kann und muss das Schienennetz stemmen? Wie können Prozesse und Baustellen optimiert werden? Diese und andere Fragen diskutieren wir mit Ihnen und den Expertinnen und Experten auf dem Podium im Videotalk.

Exhibitor profile

Mobility for Germany

Mobility is one of the most important factors for (economic) growth and prosperity in Germany and Europe. In order to safeguard and improve mobility, about 170 German and European member companies and associations have joined forces in the Deutsches Verkehrsforum.

In constant dialogue with politicians, scientists, the media and the public at large, the Deutsches Verkehrsforum is a dynamic stimulus provider, competent knowledge manager and politically independent platform rolled into one. We see our role as that of an "advocate for mobility" and promulgate an integrated transport system that is efficient, customer-oriented, affordable, resource-saving and eco-friendly.
Stimulus provider
The Deutsches Verkehrsforum is the only multi-modal industry association in Europe. As the lobby for all modes of transport, we provide stimuli for the political decision-makers. In Berlin and Brussels, we proactively promote competition and the elimination of red tape.
Knowledge manager
The Deutsches Verkehrsforum establishes a link between the transport industry and other sectors of the economy. Experienced, high-calibre industry representatives contribute to our work. This allows us to act as a knowledge manager that consolidates, evaluates and imparts information and knowledge.
The Deutsches Verkehrsforum is the platform that reinforces interests relating to the transport industry. At the intersection between business, politics and science, we create opportunities for dialogue relating to all aspects of mobility.
