RIA’s Unlocking Innovation scheme

Do you need help…

…getting your innovations on to the railway?


The 21st century railway faces significant economic, environmental and engineering challenges. The industry has to move quickly and decisively to meet these challenges and turn good, innovative ideas into positive business benefits that will ultimately lead to a better railway and boost exports for UK suppliers.

RIA is working with other key organisations to unlock innovation to help release potential and develop a range of exciting business opportunities.

To make this happen, RIA runs a series of informal but very focused and vibrant workshops designed specifically to inform, promote best practice and bring together suppliers and clients to share challenges and solutions.

There’s no wasted time, just a host of opportunities to network with some 200+ people representing 140+ organisations to understand and seize commercial opportunities, find business partners or to learn how to access funding mechanisms.

The workshops all feature key industry clients, as well as suppliers from in and outside the rail sector, who are waiting to hear your ideas, products, services and challenges. You will also have free access to resources from experienced partners in industry and academia.

So join us – make things happen.Railway Innovation Association
