The journey to the future is a European railway system open to all
EIM, the European Rail Infrastructure Managers, was established to promote
the interests and views of the independent infrastructure managers in Europe,
following liberalisation of the railway market. The organisation was fully established in spring 2002.
EIM is an open and democratic organisation. Each member has a vote. It is
also unique in that it allows for the expression of minority opinions.
EIM works to improve the development of the rail transport mode. It also acts
as an advocacy organisation towards the European Institutions and together with
the industry. EIM provides expertise to the appropriate European bodies
including the European Rail Agency (ERA).
