The UK is at the forefront of new thinking when it comes to our rail network, with some of the most innovative and dynamic businesses based on our shores, all of whom are working every day to support our railways.
Their new ideas are helping to improve the passenger experience, increase connectivity and capacity, reduce the UK’s carbon footprint and generate jobs, economic growth and investment. And as the UK faces new challenges – whether environmental, economic or technological – these organisations will ensure our rail network is ready to continue supporting the country, by building a railway fit for the future.
The Railway Industry Association’s Unlocking Innovation programme has two clear aims:
- To promote the many innovations and developments within the UK rail industry; and
- To connect businesses together to open up new opportunities to innovate.
For more than a decade, Unlocking Innovation has showcased new ideas and thinking from across the industry, reaching thousands of people and making the case for the sector as a leading light for innovation.
