New nomination deadline!

In 2021 the European Commission is planning to put rail in the spotlight through a dedicated European Year of Rail. What better way to showcase rail’s impressive capabilities than by competing to become the next European Railway Award winner?

Do you know a leading voice who has succeeded in opening up political debate or implementing concrete policy shifts for rail?
Are you part of a campaign raising rail’s profile or a project, large or small, revolutionising the rail business?
Maybe you would like us to recognise a ground-breaking study supporting the rail mode in Europe?
Let us know about the inspiring achievements that are making a real difference to our sector.

We are accepting the nomination of candidates responding to the following eligibility criteria:

  • - Nominations can be for any individual, project, initiative, study, etc. having made a significant contribution to the European rail sector in any of the following areas: transport policy, sustainability, competitiveness and innovation, cross-border/cross-mode collaboration or social responsibility
  • - The person/project/initiative/study must be based in Europe and be nominated for a relevant achievement demonstrating innovative thought leadership, inspiring political action or pioneering technological advances

Nominations should be submitted online here by 15 July 2020.

Eligible candidates will be shortlisted and put to a jury vote.

The rail sector was not just one of many dealing with the extraordinary challenges of the global coronavirus pandemic. It has come to the rescue of Europe’s economy with noteworthy resilience in these times of crisis. Thus we are sure this year has been as full as ever of bright ideas, ingenious innovation and bold policy initiatives devised to enhance, grow and strengthen the rail mode today and for the future. We look forward to discovering your nominations!
