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 to promote the development of new products and solutions and the entry into new markets. 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 offers the opportunity to reinforce the innovative strength of Saxon companies. Members also benefit from the synergies resulting from the exchange of knowledge and experience within the international BTS network. With more than 50 members BTS Rail Saxony is the largest railway industry cluster in Central Germany.


As a founding member and a spokesperson 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 for 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. BTS Rail Saxony is supported by funds of the joint initiative “Improvement of the regional economy structure” by the Free State of Saxony.
