EUAN Certificate of Excellence

ERA receives the EU Agencies Certificate of Excellence

Published: 09 February 2023 Updated: 10 February 2023

The Agency has been rewarded for its Speed Networking Event fostering Women in Transport.


In 2021, a group of dedicated ERA colleagues conducted a speed networking initiative, through which they connected with young female students and professionals to give them useful career advice, and to encourage them to consider a career in European railways. This was done via online meetings, as the Agency was still working under restrictions due to COVID-19, and it received a lot of positive feedback from the 20plus participants.

Now this ERA initiative got official recognition through the network of the Agencies of the European Union (EUAN), which in its diversity and inclusion programme gave an award for outstanding activities in the field.

The ERA team, while not winning the award, was among the few initiatives recognised by the committee through a “Certificate of Excellence” – so congratulations to Carmen Antonaya, Simona Capuozzo, Begona Domingo, Nathalie Duquenne, Anna Gigantino, Oana Gherghinescu, Lorenza Lo Iacono, Dorothea Spaepen, Ny Tiana Tournier, and Anja van Impe for their efforts!
