In addition to funding allocated under the Shift2Rail Initiative, funds complementing Horizon 2020 funds may be allocated from other Union instruments to support actions for the deployment of mature outcomes of the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking:
Since one of the objectives of Shift2Rail is to provide a platform for pooling and better coordinating research and innovation (R&I) efforts in the rail sector, all rail-related research funding under H2020 will be concentrated in Shift2Rail. However, this does not mean that other parts of the H2020 work programme may not be of interest of the rail industry. In particular, the transport work programme contains a number of cross-modal topics for which the rail supply industry may still apply. Other H2020 work programmes (e.g. security) have also topics focusing on transport, to which the rail industry could contribute its expertise.
