The Railway Industry Association (RIA), the voice of the UK rail supply community, has welcomed the announcement of £9 million in ‘First of a Kind’ funding for rail research and development.
David Clarke, Technical Director at the Railway Industry Association, said: “It is great to see a further round of funding being opened by the Government to spur innovation in rail. Whether it’s building back better post-Coronavirus, decarbonising or improving the passenger experience, this funding will help the rail sector find new solutions that deliver a better and more effective railway, for the benefit of passengers, freight users and the wider economy.”
