Clément Beaune and Volker Wissing, the transport ministers of France and Germany, announced this new rail scheme earlier this year. The rail programme is now open for applications. 

In order to build a cultural exchange between the two countries as well as encourage travel, they have launched this scheme. It is noted as a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Elysée Treaty.

Clément Beaune added that this new initiative is in line with the climatic ambitions of France. It also aims to encourage more and more young people to take up rail routes. The scheme will be financially supported by Deutsche Bahn and SNCF.
