Three new EU rail research and development projects, Roll2Rail, IT2Rail and In2Rail) are now officially under way. The projects have been selected by the European Commission following the first “Mobility for Growth” call of the Horizon 2020 Programme.

Roll2Rail and IT2Rail will be coordinated by UNIFE, the European Rail Industry Association, while Network Rail, the UK rail infrastructure manager, will coordinate In2Rail.

The regulation establishing the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking was adopted by the EU Council of Ministers in June 2014 with full support of the European Parliament, following five years of investigation and work of key European Rail sector players under the coordination of UNIFE and in cooperation with the European Commission.

Roll2Rail aims to develop key technologies and to remove identified blocking points for innovation in the field of railway vehicles as part of a longer term strategy to revolutionise the rolling stock of the future.

IT2Rail aims to create seamless travel through a complete multimodal travel offering, connecting the first and last mile to long distance journeys combining air, rail, coach and other services.

In2Rail aims to set the foundation for a resilient, consistent, cost-efficient, high capacity, and digitalised European rail network. A holistic approach covering Smart Infrastructures, Intelligent Mobility Management (I2M) and Rail Power Supply and Energy Management will be applied.
