European Railway Award 2019

20 February 2019

This year again, the ceremony will include a round-table discussion with high level speakers from the European institutions and from the rail sector, who will address the theme of “A strong rail network for European mobility”, before welcoming on stage the 2019 laureate of the European Railway Award.

For this 12th edition, the award will be presented to Catherine Trautmann, European Coordinator of the TEN-T North-Sea Baltic Corridor and Vice-President of the Eurométropole de Strasbourg (also a former Member of the European Parliament and former Mayor of Strasbourg), for her long-standing support of the European rail supply industry and a thriving rail network for the transport of people and goods across Europe.
