A £1 million competition opened on 13 May to find solutions that can transform the rail customer’s experience.

Published on: 3rd June 2013

The GB rail industry is seeking innovative solutions which will lead to transformation of the rail customer’s experience, both passengers and freight customers.

The Enabling Innovation Team (EIT) is running a £1 million prize-bearing competition for those innovative ideas with the most significant impact for customers.

In addition to solutions from the existing rail supply chain, proposals are sought from non-rail sectors, including transferring best practice technologies, processes and business models from sectors who have successfully transformed their own customers’ experience.

The competition launched on 13 May 2013 – together with details of proposal criteria and guidelines, and will remain open for a period of 2 months. Proposals will then be judged, feedback provided and finalists invited to a final award presentation event (September 2013).
