Two Innovation Awards will be attributed on Tuesday, March 21 at 5.00 pm, during the exhibitors cocktail.
One of the two awards will be attributed to an exhibiting company, and another one to a visiting company. Awards need to be related to products, systems, technologies, processes or services, with proven innovative features.
The contest is organized by the French competitiveness cluster i-Trans, as a 1st step of the European Innovation Awards contest, in the frame of the European Railway Clusters Initiative (ERCI).

The winners will be selected by a jury of independent experts representing industry, research and public authorities. Selection will be based on following criteria:
- Innovation features of the solution
- Economic and social benefits for the railway sector
- Integration of new digital technologies
- Impact on “human capital”
