  • The Hub was created in 2017 as an initiative of private companies to promote innovation in the railway sector.

April 27th, 2018 – Abengoa, (MCE: ABG/P:SM), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the infrastructures, energy and water sectors, has participated, as member of the board of directors of the 'The Railway Innovation Hub', in the meeting of the second general assembly of this initiative of private companies whose main objective is to promote innovation in the railway sector.
