As chairman of the Fraunhofer Traffic and Transportation Alliance our managing director Prof. Dr. Uwe Clausen welcomed the British Rail Minister Paul Maynard with a delegation of "Rail Industry Association" at the joint booth of Fraunhofer at InnoTrans 2016 in Berlin.
The minister was impressed by the technological competency in non-destructive testing, the laser-supported contact wire testing "made by Fraunhofer" and by the innovative approaches with respect to lightweight construction of rail vehicles. The Minister was particularly interested in aspects of safety and convenience for travelers and also how Fraunhofer Institutes and their partners generally put innovations to practical use for the future mobility. Both the Rail Industry Association and the Minister will stay in touch with the Fraunhofer Traffic and Transportation Alliance.
