3. Background and Outcome of the Forum

Since the RTRI and the NSTDA concluded a technical cooperation agreement on July 1, 2021, even under the travel restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the two parties continued information exchange between experts online every four months.

In the long-awaited Railway Technology Forum finally held face-to-face, the RTRI and the NSTDA gave three presentations respectively (see Table below). Each presentation was followed by lively and informative discussions with many questions and answers.

In the final presentation, Dr. Miyauchi of the RTRI reported what they had done so far in the course of our specific collaborative project (Technical Cooperation with NSTDA and RTRI), and subsequently, we agreed that we would continue to have meetings online every four months and that we would hold face-to-face technology forums annually.
