Innovation of the Month

Highlighting some of the best in innovation from across the rail industry

The monthly feature will showcase some of the innovative rail products and services developed by RIA members and partner organisations.

Each month’s edition will promote a specific innovation or area around a certain theme, showcasing the innovative work of the industry and analysing how this will impact the UK’s railways. This will be shared to our membership through a bespoke email as well as on the RIA website and promoted on our social media channels – all of which will also link to your organisation.

How to get involved?
We are asking for your ideas and content on a recent innovative product or solution which you have produced or worked on, around the above theme, which we will develop into c. 500 word written post for our website. We welcome any content – whether press notices, written content, brochure and leaflets, visual content or social media collateral, such as explainer videos, which you might wish to share.

To submit content, or if you have any queries, please email alexis.king@riagb.org.uk
