A collaborative effort including academia and industry is needed to equip the railway industry with an excellent workforce. Degree programmes and courses in railways should incorporate an innovative flexible structure to meet the industry imminent needs for qualified personnel. Research, engagement, promotion and co-operation are vehicles of innovation and modernisation in higher education, which could be better explored to design and implement rail-orientated curricula of excellence, leading to successful university programmes and courses. In this paper we call upon rail academics and stakeholders to participate in a workshop on railway education to discuss the industry imminent needs for improvements in rail education. To stimulate discussion and knowledge sharing a number of examples on teaching and learning initiatives are presented followed by suggestions for future activities and joint ventures strengthening co-operation and outcome.
