Transalley, the transport and sustainable mobility technology park, was nominated for a European Rail Award in an inaugural ceremony celebrating successful European rail projects.

Transalley - European Rail Awards - sustainable mobility - transport - railway - Lille Region

The exclusive Awards ceremony was held at the World Rail Federation summit on November 12 and 13, bringing together key industry figures from across Europe to discuss and debate critical changes now shaping the future of European rail. Major players shared insights and discussed key challenges and opportunities in their markets.

Transalley was in the running for Best Partnership of the Year -- one of nine projects shortlisted in this category.  And while it did not take home the prize, its nomination underscores the cluster’s global reach.

Based in Valenciennes, Transalley is a 34-hectare technology park hosting innovative start-ups, research centers, institutions and transport operators, with a clear focus on rail. Dedicated to excellence, it is a complete ecosystem that offers a wide range of resources from rail industry players throughout the region.

In all, 19 prizes were awarded in 19 project categories, from a field of over 300 for this first Awards ceremony.

The European Rail Awards are designed to bring the European rail network together to celebrate its achievements in providing safe, efficient, high-quality connectivity across Europe; reducing Europe’s emission of greenhouse gases; boosting jobs and economic growth; and promoting European competitiveness.
