STARS Hack&Match Event #5 | Call for Solutions is open

What is it about?

STARS “Hack & Match” events are an integral part of the support services provided by the EU STARS project for small and medium-sized enterprises. The aim is to support SMEs from the rail/mobility sector in Europe in the introduction of advanced technologies. This should contribute to the improvement of their products, services, manufacturing processes and organisation and ultimately to an increase in innovation and competitiveness.

The main focus of the STARS “Hack & Match” event #5 is to develop and stimulate innovation and cooperation between more traditional and technology-savvy SMEs and solution providers on the topic of “Advanced Technologies for Resilience of Railway Supply Chains”.
