Run by RSSB, the Future Railway programme is a collaboration between Network Rail and RSSB which has been established to support innovation in the delivery of the Rail Technical Strategy. It has cross industry support through the Technical Strategy Leadership Group and currently has over 100 active projects.
Working with the industry and supply chain we promote innovation by supporting cross-industry projects and seeking innovative ideas and proposals from across the industry.
Our approach is to understand the challenges that industry faces; connect potential innovators with these challenges; and, where necessary allocate potential funding in order to identify the technology and activity needed to deliver the railway of the future.
