This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by the Department for Transport . The aim of this competition is to deliver demonstrations to the UK’s railways which must support low emissions and a greener railway, enhance rail freight, and address a range of key network performance priorities. Projects must demonstrate how proven technologies can be integrated into a railway environment for the first time as ‘first of a kind’ demonstrations.
This competition aims to support innovative suppliers in preparation for market readiness, and must create a highly interactive and innovative demonstrator in phase 2 project, which should be in an environment where railway customers and industry representatives can witness the product as a compelling business proposition. There are also two concurrent competitions opening, focusing on freight and rail reliability.
Competition opens: Wednesday 20 April 2022
Competition closes: Wednesday 8 June 2022 11:00am
