EUROFIMA has a non-profit mission to support the development of public passenger rail transportation in Europe and to support the railway bodies which are its shareholders in renewing and modernizing their equipment.


EUROFIMA was established on November 20, 1956, based on an international treaty (the “Convention”) between 14 sovereign States.

Today it is composed of 25 member states and 26 shareholders.

It was originally founded for a period of 50 years. On February 1, 1984, the extraordinary General Assembly made the decision to extend this period for an additional 50 years, until 2056.
