Rail Activation is a project coordinated by Mafex with a European consortium composed of the Tecnalia Technology Centre, the Italian Ditecfer Cluster, BTS German Cluster and QUINN Technology Centre. The project execution began on September 1st 2019 and will last 24 months. Approximately 20 European SMEs will benefit from the initiative.
The project is part of the H2020 call and its main objective is to create and pilot a business and organizational scheme for the adoption of innovation strategies in the workplace of SMEs, using the Open Innovation approach.
Rail Activation will work on the development of new mechanisms and tools that allow the involvement of SMEs in a future that will be closely related to an organization model aligned with the needs that arise from the data flow and their compilation through devices, sensors, ecosystems, infrastructure and connections of all kinds.
To contribute to the success of the SMEs in this new industrial revolution for the use of the best available technologies by the railway industry, Rail Activation will work on open innovation strategies that will support the transformation of the railway industry from the inside out.
