The SRG has adopted its own rules of procedure:

The States Representatives Group (SRG) is one of the four bodies of the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking (Shift2Rail JU). It comprises representatives of the EU Member States and of the countries associated with Horizon 2020.

The SRG has several main tasks: these include, inter alia, the review of information and the provision of opinions on the strategic orientation of the JU and on key documents such as the Shift2Rail Master Plan, the Multi-Annual Action Plan (MAAP) and the Annual Work Plans (AWPs), as well as acting as an interface for national/regional research and innovation programmes.
