Shift2Rail BY ESC

At the panel of the Shift2Rail event, the European Shippers’ Council and the European Passengers Federation stated that “Rail” must become more customer focused and more affordable, punctual, reliable, and available! “And rail should increase its internal and external connectivity,” added Henrik Hololei, Director-General for Mobility and Transport at the European Commission.

This event – Shift2Rail Dialogue on the Future of Research & Innovation, held on 19 June 2018 in Brussels – was an ideal platform for railway stakeholders to address policy and industry expectations.

Shift2Rail is the first European rail initiative to seek focused research and innovation (R&I) and market-driven solutions by accelerating the integration of new and advanced technologies into innovative rail product solutions. R&I carried out under this initiative develops the necessary technology to complete the Single European Railway Area (SERA). Shift2Rail aims to double the capacity of the European rail system and increase its reliability and service quality by 50%, while halving life-cycle costs.
