Europe’s Rail Joint Undertaking was established in 2021 and is the largest railway innovation programme ever in Europe.

Under the leadership of the Norwegian Railway Directorate, the Norwegian railway sector and R&D environments are participating in major innovation projects over the next 10 years.
