Rail programme doles out €60m

Shift2Rail, the public-private partnership to modernise European rail travel, has awarded a total of €60 million to 17 research projects.

Of the €60m, €40.6m was awarded to Shift2Rail member organisations for 7 proposals, with the remaining €19.5m awarded to 10 projects through open calls, Shift2Rail announced on 14 June. The projects will be co-financed by their participating organisations, giving the work a total value of €111m.

Shift2Rail is a so-called ‘joint undertaking’—an EU legal entity that organises its own research and innovation agenda. Other joint undertakings include the Innovative Medicines Initiative, which seeks to develop new medical treatments, and Clean Sky, which aims to reduce emissions from air travel.
