G.A.S.T Network

German – ASEAN Science and Technology Network

In order to contribute to the sustainable development of mega cities, efficient mass transport systems play a key role. Especially in Asia, the problems of a fast growing population and an increasing demand for mobility can only be mastered by the rapid implementation of state-of-the-art transport technologies.

Advanced German railway systems are already in use at several urban regions in Asia and have successfully demonstrated to enhance the situation there. This conference provides a broad overview on modern mass transportation technology and railway engineering education “Made in Germany”, supplemented by local expert views. The conference acts as a platform for discussing on how German technology can be applied to solve the prevailing local problems.
