During the coordination conference FTE B the participants had the possibility to be supported by Mr. Máté Bak (PCS Technical Manager & IT Service Desk Manager) from RailNetEurope (RNE), in all PCS matters.

RNE and FTE organized a TTR information event to inform the participants about the reaching of the „Redesign of the International Timetabling Process" (TTR) projects most important milestone: In the next phase they will start with the first pilots and collect experiences along the way. Based on these experiences this process will be implemented one step at a time.
