The objective of IMPACT-1 is to help maximise the impact of Shift2Rail by analysing the socioeconomic impact of the S2R developments, identifying the future application use cases by System platform demonstrator scenarios and assess the impact of the development by using Key Performance Indicators.

The objectives of this proposal IMPACT-1 are:

  • Evaluating the effects for mobility, society and environment induced by new technology solutions and developments,
  • Introducing relevant targets and needs to create a more attractive, a more competitive and more sustainable rail system
  • Defining System Platform Demonstrators (SPD) that represent future application use cases
  • Defining Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that enable the monitoring and assessment of the Shift2Rail overall target achievement.

These objectives will be reached by performing a socio-economic impact analysis for high speed, regional, urban and freight. The model of the KPI shows the relation of the low-level KPI to the overall targets defined in the S2R Master Plan.
