BTS Rail Saxony – The cluster of the ‘railway state’ Saxony
BTS Rail Saxony is a cluster initiated by the BTS Bahntechnik Sachsen e.V. that provides a joint platform for all rail vehicle suppliers, infrastructure companies, engineering companies and civil engineers. Intensive networking brings the right partners together and paves the way for new products and markets. With about 60 members and over a thousand contacts from business, science and politics, BTS Rail Saxony is the largest cluster of the
railway industry in Central Germany.
In addition to that the cluster includes scientific institutions, notably the Dresden University of Technology – one in a few with the label ‘elite university’ in Germany. The close cooperation with research and science is the key to the sustainable innovative strength of Saxon companies. Members also benefit from the synergies resulting from the exchange of knowledge and experience within the international BTS network.
As a founding member of ERCI (European Railway Clusters Initiative), BTS Rail Saxony works with European partners to establish an international recognition of European SME’s in the rail sector. Together, we engage in a participation in research programs such as ‘Shift2Rail’ to ensure the competitiveness of the railway industry companies in Saxony and Europe over the next few years. Finally, BTS Rail Saxony is a member of the European Commission-sponsored PERES consortium “Promoting European Railway Excellence outside the EU”. The consortium led by the Italian ERCI partner cluster DITECFER promotes the marketing of European and mainly medium-sized railway technology products outside the EU.
BTS Rail Saxony is supported by funds of the joint initiative “Improvement of the regional economy structure” by the Free State of Saxony.
