The SEESARI initiative is built on the need to set up a platform on which to build a structure that will support the SEE Area (SEEA) in identifying, developing and implementing innovative solutions for the South East European Railway System as part of the future European Railway System.
The huge significance of SEESARI is that it is helping to build bridges and break down walls and that the end result will be a more interoperable rail network, that is truly acting as the transport backbone of the SEE Area and contributing to greater mobility and economic objectives in Europe.
SEESARI is supported by International Union of Railways (UIC), Community of European Railways (CER), SHIFT2RAIL JU and many others.
The main stakeholders are railway operators and infrastructure managers, railway and transport associations, universities and research organizations, manufacturers and suppliers of technical equipment, financial institutions, NGOs, national and regional authorities, and other interested organizations from South East Europe and wider..
SEESARI is not limited only to South East Europe, since transport has no boundaries, and includes also other countries with transport corridors connected to SEE.
