Would you like to expand your business into the rail sector?

This event will help : The Technology Strategy Board aims to support consortia by facilitating access to key rail stakeholders and industry bodies including Network Rail and operating companies, by providing points of contact and advisory support. As a result, consortia do not necessary need to include these organisations as full partners.

The event

This workshop will be an essential step for companies, universities and other organisations to understand the aims and scope of the competition, discuss projects and build relationships with potential collaborators that can be leveraged for the competition and beyond. The workshop is multidisciplinary and we welcome the participation of organisations from all relevant sectors. The full scope of the competition will be presented along with relevant detailed information on some of the challenges facing the rail sector.

The day will be geared around giving attendees ample opportunity for structured and unstructured networking. Attendees will have the opportunity for a 2 minute, one-slide “elevator pitch”.
