This event will provide an overview of the Digital Railway (what is it, what will it be, and the drivers of change). It will also detail the work done by the University of Birmingham and UKKRIN's centre for digital systems in fostering research, innovation and rail product and service development.
Finally, the event will talk about DIGI-RAIL, an ERDF funded project aimed at supporting local SMEs to access support from the university.
The event is aimed at local SMEs, either those currently in rail or those who have the capacity/interest to supply rail, to give them an overview of rail opportunities and how to access them.
Attendees will gain a better understanding of rail supply opportunities; the opportunity to network with relevant stakeholders and key players.
