Railway transport is a means of conveyance of passengers and goods. Due to a significant increase in traffic volume and a long-lasting demand for the economic development of regional agglomerations, along with the interest in reduction of travel time and stimulating population mobility, construction of efficient high-speed rail lines is considered as a priority for all countries seeking full participation in the world economy. For Russian and Kazakh governments high-speed rail has become increasingly important.
The aim of the Project Economy, Ecology and Infrastructure at High-Speed Railways (EEIHSR) is to educate competent specialists in the field of railway engineering, especially in the field of high-speed railway (HSR).
The project EEIHSR is funded by the European Union under the ERASMUS+ programme, which is aimed at supporting cooperation in higher education between partner universities. The programme is an effective tool to promote human and social capital development in Europe and beyond.
