Description of programme
"Shift2Rail "

Shift2Rail fosters the introduction of better trains to the market, which operate on an innovative rail network infrastructure at a lower life-cycle cost, with more capacity to cope with growing passenger and freight mobility demand. All this are developed by European companies, thereby increasing their competitiveness in the global marketplace. Shift2Rail also contributes to the paradigm for the modal shift to attract users to rail. For EU passengers, this represents more travel options, more comfort and improved punctuality. For freight forwarder/shippers, rail freight offers a more cost-effective, punctual and traceable shipment option.
Shift2Rail contributes to:

  • Cutting the life-cycle cost of railway transports by as much as 50%
  • Doubling railway capacity
  • Increasing reliability and punctuality by as much as 50%

Description of call
"Innovative/breakthrough mobility concepts (with rail as backbone)"
Current activities in S2R are developing the fundamental building blocks that will allow the creation of the future railway interoperable system, but new disruptive concepts can accelerate the pace or deviate the path.
