3rd Innovation Phase has begun!

The third innovation phase of SmartRail is launched!

Third phase aims to develop tram-connected digital mobility services and scalable technology solutions for the sustainable, service-oriented and safe autonomous future of urban mobility. The project will co-create data-driven solutions to improve the travel experience, seamless travel chains and safety.

The SmartRail#3 consortium includes GIM Robotics, iQ Payments, Moovy, Nodeon, Solita, Tietoevry Create, the City of Tampere, Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom, Tampere University and VTT, which is acting as coordinator of the joint project. Ecosystem actors are building a joint offering for focused target markets by combining their complementary skills.

The project, funded by Business Finland and worth around EUR 6 million, started in February 2024 and will conclude at the end of 2026. The project, part of Business Finland’s Decarbonized Cities programme, is part of the SmartRail Ecosystem development path and is also linked to Tietoevry’s Business Finland Veturi project.
