Transversal Exploratory Research Activities for Railway

TER4RAIL

Transversal Exploratory Research Activities for Railway

Call for proposal: 
H2020-S2RJU-OC-2018
Link to CORDIS:
Objectives: 

The main objective of TER4RAIL is to reinforce the cooperation between rail-related stakeholders to improve the efficiency of the consensual exploratory research in the rail sector, in order to facilitate emerging innovative ideas and the cross-fertilisation of knowledge from other disciplines or of disruptive technology and innovation. TER4RAIL intends to promote this process by strengthening transversal exploratory research in Europe for and with a railway's perspective in the frame of multimodality. 

To support this aim, cooperation with the ERRAC European Technology Platform (ETP) is extremely important. For this reason, the participants of the Consortium form the central stakeholders of ERRAC and are deeply engaged in ERRAC activities. 

The main objective of TER4RAIL is supported by further specific objectives detailed below: 

Specific objectives of TER4RAIL 

  • To identify and monitor new opportunities for innovative research and facilitate the cross- fertilisation of knowledge from other disciplines or of disruptive technology and innovations;
  • To review, support, and improve the sector roadmaps, in preparation for the next iteration of the road mapping process in the railway sector, considering multimodal environments and railway as the backbone of mobility in the future;
  • To collect, analyse, and elaborate available data and statistics to build arguments that portray the benefits of railways for European society;
  • To communicate and promote, in joint collaboration with Shift2Rail, the outcomes of the CSA to the scientific community, rail stakeholders, mobility innovators, technology providers, policy makers, and non-rail stakeholders in the framework of coordinated transversal Research and Innovation (R&I).
