About the conference

Concerned by the current issues related to technological and social changes, Laboratory IRTES-RECITS (EA7274) of the University of Technology from Belfort-Montbéliard is organizing an international conference on « Railway high-speed and territorial governance ». This event will create a new space of dialogue, exchange and interaction, between the academic world and society, professionals and political representatives. It will also be an occasion to present our findings from research into the Rhin-Rhône High-Speed Line. This scientific conference will run concurrently with a series of roundtables gathering the main actors of the Rhin-Rhône HSL.in the round tables will be run in order to build a collective image on the impacts of industrial and institutional changes in progress. An exhibition and a conference-debate open to a large audience will be an occasion to collect experience, feedback and narratives on a range of projects.
