Another major venture for the Rail Alliance this autumn is the launch of the £2.3m European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Hitech Rail project where we are strategic partners to the University of Birmingham.
This program will extend over the next three years helping local companies develop and demonstrate new concepts. HiTech Rail will draw on the internationally leading railway expertise of the University of Birmingham Centre for Rail Research and Education and our in depth knowledge of the sector.
We are particularly interested in working with companies who are based in the West Midlands and who have interests in:
- Condition Monitoring
- Software and Data Processing
- Energy Saving
- Non-destructive Testing
- Traffic Management
- New Components
- New product or process introduction
For those companies who are not eligible under this program they may be supported through the Testing Voucher Scheme or a number of other funding programs that the Rail Alliance are working with. As ever just call or email us [email protected]
