Young Rail Professionals Pitching Competition

The inaugural competition was held at AusRAIL 2016 and has become a favourite amongst the rail community. The premise is to invite rail professionals 30 years and under to submit an idea that could revolutionise the rail industry. Finalists will have the opportunity to present their ideas to industry leaders at AusRAIL with the winner announced at the Gala Dinner.

This year the winner will receive a trip to InnoTrans 2020 in Berlin!

Entries must be 400-600 words and include a concept title, name/contact details, institution and qualification underway/completed (including completion date), the issue being addressed and the solution/idea proposed. Final presentations can include multi and/or mixed media.
