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%

In line with the distinction between different types of calls for proposals, the Joint Undertaking (JU) will distinguish between two types of calls for proposals with specific eligibility conditions:
  • competitive calls for proposals, which will restrict the type of beneficiary to JU Members and their affiliated entities. In the case of Members in the form of consortia or groupings of legal entities, the individual constituent entities of these consortia or groupings, and the affiliated entities of these individual constituent entities, are eligible to participate in the restricted calls for JU Members.
  • open, competitive calls for proposals that will be addressed only to entities that are not Members of the S2R JU (founding or associated), nor constituent entities of Members in the form of consortia or groupings, nor affiliated entities either to the S2R JU Members or to the constituent entities of Members in the form of consortia or groupings.
