Eress Forum 2022

Eress celebrates its 15 years of collaboration and to highlight it, we have chosen the place where it all started, Oslo. Eress Forum is the place that gathers all railway-energy parties. Organisations like EU commission and UIC will be there. Infrastructure Managers from Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Sweden, Hungary, Germany and Norway will be there. You can also expect, Train operators, train manufacturers, as well as Energy Metering and Driving Advisory System suppliers.

What can you expect if coming to Oslo?
As we are celebrating Eress 15 years, it will be more than the annual Eress Forum.
This year we have organised other railway and social activities on June 8, 9 and 10, open for the participants joining us in Oslo.

Can I participate if I cannot go to Oslo?
Yes, you can. Please click to go to the registration page. We will send a Teams link for all participants that cannot join us in Oslo.
