European Railway Award

The European Railway Award was initiated in 2007 and is jointly organised by the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Industry (CER), and the Association of the European Rail Industry (UNIFE).

The European Railway Award honours outstanding political and technical achievements in the development of economically and environmentally sustainable rail transport. The award comes with prize money, which is donated to charity organisations of the laureates’ choice. The jury consists of CEOs of railway and rail industry companies as well as political decision makers.
