EIT Digital’s next networking event, Digital Headway, will aim to open up discussion among rail IT and management specialists looking to improve enterprise performance digitally, and high-tech entrepreneurs, institutions offering innovative, proven solutions in the Rail Industry, Multimodal transport and for the Hubs of the future.

If your corporate job is advancing digital transformation and you work for a

  • Rail component manufacturer,
  • Rail network operator, infrastructure provider,
  • Rail or other cargo shipper,
  • Transport hub operator or municipal planner, supervisor,
  • Or other Cargo logistician

this is an intimate, small scale event to really get to know the digital solution providers arriving from European destinations.

If your startup, scale-up or company has ready-to-test digital solutions in

  • Energy efficiency (improved aerodynamics, lightweight wagon etc.),
  • Capacity/Productivity (wagons for ’trucks on train’, container wagons capable of multimodal transport, new rapid loading/unloading procedures, virtual coupling, increased axle load etc.),
  • Reliability (EP-brake, automated train operation, digitalisation of freigh etc.),
  • Noise reduction (low-noise optimised wagon etc.),
  • Or Total Cost of Ownership (remote control for distributed power, driver advisory systems, maintenance intelligence, novel terminals, hubs, marshalling yards, connections etc.),

then this is the place to network and showcase how your solution can contribute to creating business value for corporate stakeholders in the rail industry.

The October 17 Digital Industry Networking Event will feature plenty of opportunities for professionals from the rail industry to mingle and engage in B2B matchmaking. Attendance is free after registration and a light buffet lunch will be provided to cap the morning. If you have any questions or would like to present at the event, contact Balázs Erdei at
