Onsite Workshop in Rome

We just had our Railsponsible Onsite Workshop in Rome!

After a dinner the day before the workshop, which gave us the true taste of Dolce Vita and the opportunity to connect and exchange ideas, we still had a full workshop day ahead of us. During the onsite workshop, we discussed all current topics, clarified open questions, and advanced all working groups. The atmosphere was characterized by the eagerness to collaborate and support each other. It became clear throughout the workshop that we really need to celebrate all successes, even the smallest, that we achieve together as a rail community.

The next step for Railsponsible is to bring all the pieces together and consolidate the outcome into a clear roadmap.

Railsponsible holds three onsite workshops per year, and the next one is scheduled for June 2023 in Vienna.
