DITECFER | new vitamins for rail

DITECFER - the Tuscan District for Rail Technologies, High Speed, Safety & Security has been created in March 2011 aiming at improving Tuscan enterprises' competitiveness and their products for vehicles, infrastructures and systems.
Nowadays it is composed by:
  • 125 ENTERPRISES having a seat in Tuscany (Hitachi Rail Italy, Thales Italy, ECM, Knorr Bremse Rail Systems Italy, Intecs, IDS, Italcertifer - among the largest - plus many innovative SMEs)
  • 5 Tuscan SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCIES (CNR-National Research Council of Italy, School Sant'Anna of Pisa, University of Florence, University of Pisa, University of Siena)

DITECFER is also the consortium managing the Tuscan District and promoting its companies on the international markets.
It is currently composed by 32 companies operating in the Rail Industry, and 3 renowned Research Bodies specialized in Technologies applied to Rail. Research and Innovation are, in fact, “core” to DITECFER. Also the main three Trade Associations are part of it.

DITECFER companies represent the entire Rail Supply Chain: from Rolling Stock design, manufacturing, maintenance, to Infrastructure realization; from Signalling and Control Systems development, production, testing, installation, maintenance, to Certification and Homologation.
Thanks to R&I activities, DITECFER companies can easily integrate their competences in order to provide solutions to critical issues such as the challenges of environmental sustainability and hostile climatic conditions.

At national level DITECFER coordinates the Rail Working Group within the "NATIONAL TECHNOLOGICAL CLUSTER TRASPORTI ITALIA 2020".
The project we are developing, "TESYS RAIL", aims at developing Techniques and tools for enhancing environmental sustainability of rail transport systems.

At European level DITECFER is part of ERCI-EUROPEAN RAIL CLUSTERS INITIATIVE, currently assembling 11 Districts/Clusters from 9 Countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, UK.

In the framework of the European Commission policy for Clusters Internationalizaton, DITECFER is the Coordinator of the ESCP-European Strategic Cluster Partnership named "PERES-Promoting European Rail Excellence ourSide EU" (http://www.clustercollaboration.eu/escp-profiles/peres).
