The Consortium of the HIKARI project is delighted to announce that the 2nd HIKARI Open Workshop on the topic of High Speed Transport (HST) will be held on September 24-25, 2014 in Brussels, Belgium in the premises of the European Commission.

The Project

HIKARI, or “light” in Japanese, aims at pursuing and bringing one step further cooperation between Europe and Japan in the field of high speed transport, so as to be a real and feasible scenario of our future’s daily life, allowing us, for example… to fly from Paris to Tokyo in less than three hours!

The Purpose
