UIC Digital Awards 2017 6 December 2017 in Paris

UIC - the worldwide railway organisation, launched its first UIC DIGITAL AWARDS in 2016.

Together with its Members, railway companies, and through establishing ties with digital stakeholders, UIC is giving you the opportunity to shape the future of mobility!

The UIC Digital Awards in November 2016 – the first Awards in the digital field to be presented by the International Union of Railways (UIC) – seek to recognise the sharing of knowledge between railway companies and start-ups.

These Digital Awards should open new perspectives to the railway sector and to future mobility due to the innovative and creative nature of start-up companies.

Hence, the slogan of this first edition is “Start-ups! Together let’s shape the future of Mobility. UIC is your smart partner, Join the Ecosystem.”

Conditions for participation

Since new innovative solutions can also be developed thanks to a fresh approach, only start-ups can compete.
A start-up is a young innovative company with strong growth potential which is often subject to fund-raising.

  • The chairman of the UIC Digital Platform
  • Executive members of the UIC Digital Platform
  • A figure from the digital sector
  • A representative from the academic sector
  • A representative of a large company specialised in making luggage of the future
