EIM Executive Director Monika Heiming stated: “I welcome the appointment of Caroline Huusko by the TSG today. The technical expertise in general and the work of the TSG in particular will raise in importance. In this sense, the commitment of Trafikverket to further leverage the role and interests of the rail infrastructure managers is essential.”
EIM Technical Manager Javier Moreno stated: “We are really happy to count on the expertise and background of Caroline that will be really helpful for EIM and its members in the ongoing TSIs revision and the EC proposals towards digitalization.”
Caroline Huusko stated: “I thank the members of the Technical Steering Group for their confidence and support. I am very much looking forward in working in a constructive and cooperative manner with all members of the TSG and in particular with the two Vice Chairs of the TSG, Francisco Contreras of ADIF (Spain) and Jean-Marc Pourchier of SNCF Réseau (France).“
The TSG coordinates the contribution of the members in the technical field, to the European Union Agency for Railways and its working parties. The TSG also provides strategic input to EIM on specific technical matters. The TSG has one chair and two vice-chairs. It meets five times a year.
