At the end of January 2020, the German Centre for Railway Traffic Research at Eisenbahn-Bundesamt (DZSF) hosted a workshop with the subject significant changes and their evaluation for operational and organisational changes in the railway system. Its aim was an open exchange of experiences. Therefore, various examples were presented in order to effect an open discussion with representatives of e.g. railway operators, Assessment Bodies and the German Railway Authority.

CERSS Kompetenzzentrum Bahnsicherungstechnik supported the DZSF with the execution of the workshop and presented, among other things, the results of an online survey.
