 Objective: to enhance the collaboration of the industry to carry out
ERTMS interoperability tests for any interested third parties such as
operators, IMs, etc.
 Collaboration defined in this Framework Agreement was anticipated by
the ERTMS MoU (signed in 2012)
 Document has been signed by the 8 UNISIG companies (Alstom,
AnsaldoSTS, AZD Praha, Bombardier, CAF, MerMec, Siemens, Thales)
and in force from February 2014
 Interoperability Position Paper
 Presents the state of play of Interoperability

SHIFT²RAIL
 14 March 2014: Political approval by the European Transport Council of a
legislative regulation called SHIFT2RAIL to launch an ambitious new
European Research & Innovation Programme that aims to:
 Increase the competitiveness of the EU rail industry to help it retain
world leadership
 increase the attractiveness of rail transport.
 A public-private Joint Undertaking under Horizon 2020 starting in 2015
 Budget of 920 Million Euros for 2014-2020, including 450 Million from the
EU and 470 Million from the Industry
 After 3 years of intense work by the rail sector for the technical preparatory
phase (coordinated by UNIFE)
 A historical decision for the rail sector all over Europe

More, Better, Cheaper!
 3 major challenges
 CAPACITY (to cope with growing EU demand)
Up to 100% increase in capacity
 RELIABILITY (to better satisfy users)
Up to 50% increase of reliability
 LIFE CYCLE COSTS (for more competitiveness)
Up to 50% of reduction of Life Cycle Costs
 Impacting all segments of the rail market!
 Improving mobility and making daily life easier for millions of

Innovation Programme 2 –
ADVANCED TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
AND CONTROL SYSTEMS
for improvement of mainline and urban
rail systems capacity and resilience
 STAKE AT EU LEVEL:
Maintaining the dominance
of ERTMS as a solution for
railway signalling and control
systems across the world,
while extending synergies and
interoperability with the urban
and mass transit railway
sectors and speeding up the
time to market.

building
on
current ERTMS, to enable
intelligent traffic management
with automatically driven
trains and optimise capacity,
reliability and minimise Life
Cycle Costs.

Conclusions
Conclusion
 The current innovations are aiming to fulfill the vision described in the
Transport White Paper;
 Innovations will follow the specification improvements identified in the
ERTMS Memorandum of Understanding (2012);
 SHIFT2RAIL under Horizon2020 provides the long term research
strategy on step change innovation for the European Railway Sector.
