Innovate UK KTN creates ‘cheat sheet’ to help rail businesses

Listen to this article:

UK rail is a complex sector; with many stakeholders, partners, funders, and miles of track.

With this in mind, Innovate UK KTN’s Rail Lead, Daisy Chapman-Chamberlain, has produced a starter ‘cheat-sheet’ for innovation in UK rail (below).

This document outlines key stakeholders, industry structure for innovation, some funding streams and much more. As many organisations, particularly SMEs, often find it difficult to source information and support within rail, this document serves as a valuable starting-point for learning and engagement for those coming into, new in, and even established in the sector. 


Dan Piner, Senior Strategy and Innovation Manager at South Western Railway, said, “Rail is a complex and multifaceted sector. At South Western Railway, we are keen to support the best innovations into practice which can help our passengers and colleagues alike. We are pleased to read this document from Innovate UK KTN, which features our innovative Sirocco project. This document will give companies information at the start and throughout their journeys within rail innovation.”

Innovate UK KTN invites further contact from those interested in (and those already in) rail innovation, to get in touch for further discussion via
