Following the unique 10th anniversary celebration in 2017, the event is returning with a few new twists. The political and technical award categories have been rolled into one and we are delighted to announce the winner for 2018:

The Gotthard Base Tunnel project
for delivering the world's longest railway tunnel, shifting freight to rail

Peter Jedelhauser, former Head of the Gotthard North South Corridor Project at SBB, and Renzo Simoni, former CEO of AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd will accept the award on behalf of the European workforce who brought the project to life. 

We are honoured to welcome back European Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc and Chair of the European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee Karima Delli, who will join a high-level panel discussion including the respective Chairs of UNIFE and CER.

As always the award ceremony will be followed by the joint CER & UNIFE Annual Reception.
