Shift2Rail Research & Innovation

The work conducted within the Shift2Rail framework will be
structured, first of all, around five asset-specific Innovation
Programmes (IPs), covering all the different structural (technical)
and functional (process) sub-systems of the rail system, namely:

    • IP1: Cost-efficient and Reliable Trains, including high capacity
      trains and high speed trains;
    • IP2: Advanced Traffic Management & Control Systems;
    • IP3: Cost-efficient, Sustainable and Reliable High Capacity
      Infrastructure;
    • IP4: IT Solutions for Attractive Railway Services;
    • IP5: Technologies for Sustainable & Attractive European Freight.
    • CCA: Cross-Cutting Activities

System Approach

An important focus of Shift2Rail will be on demonstration activities, which are needed to deliver a quantified impact, but also to provide guidance on the most efficient combinations of these technologies, and assess the potential for improvement to the national, EU transport network and SERA.

These activities are considered as being the last non-commercial
step to demonstrate the operational performance and reliability
of all deliverablesfrom the technology demonstrators (TDs). The
scale / maturity of demonstrators TRL 4-7 should be high enough
to be able to prove technical, environmental and economic …
