Introduction on UNIFE and EU Research
 The railway supply industry invests around EUR 1000 Million each
year in research and development.
 UNIFE represent an industrial sector which account for a total world market of
EUR 146 Bn and provides 400,000 direct and indirect jobs in Europe
 Innovating and harmonising products and technologies are a
necessity for the rail market to deploy all its potential, and for its
stakeholders to deliver cost-effective services for intermediate and
final clients.
 Rail transport in Europe is a future-oriented industry and is
determined to offer an even more attractive, affordable, safe, clean,
competitive, high capacity and reliable transport mode.
 The rail sector organisations, UNIFE, UIC, CER, EIM, EURNEX and
UITP are cooperating in ERRAC, the European Rail Research
Advisory Council.
ERRAC in brief
 Set up in 2001 to enhance collaborative European rail research by:

Building consensus among stakeholders.

Improving synergies between EU, national and private rail research (identify priorities).

Strengthening and re-organizing research and development efforts.

Effective pooling of human and material resources.

Launching ambitious co-operative research plans.
 ERRAC is ruled by a share of Chairmanship between Supply Industries,
Railways operators and academia.
 Today it is chaired by Mr. Josef Doppelbauer (Bombardier Transportation), supported by two
Vice-Chairmen, Mr. Andy Doherty (NetworkRail) and Mr. Manuel Pereira (IST).
Aim ETP (European Commission):
European Technology platforms were set up as a stakeholder for a sector, led
by industry, with the objective of defining medium to long-term research and
technological objectives and laying down markers for achieving them.

What will SHIFT²RAIL deliver by 2020?
 Implementable results through a long-term strategic programme built around
key research clusters segmented in 5 Innovation Programs:
• IP1 - Energy & Mass Efficient Technologies for High Capacity Green Trains
• IP2 - Advance Traffic Management & Control Systems for the Improvement of Mainline
& Urban Rail Capacity & Resilience
• IP3 - The Cost efficient - High Capacity Green Infrastructure
• IP4 - The IT Solutions for a Seamless Attractive Railway Transport System
• IP5 - The Technologies for Sustainable & Attractive European Freight Transport
 For each IPs Technology Demonstrators, each addressing specific topics,
will integrate innovative technologies and develop prototypes tested in labs
to generate future competitive sub-systems.
 All innovations from all IPs are validated, tested, and combined in a real rail
environment to demonstrate the expected benefits at system level: we call
that System Platform Demonstrations. Five System Platform
Demonstrations will be developed on HIGH SPEED, URBAN/SUBURBAN,
REGIONAL, FREIGHT TRAIN, and INFRASTRUCTURE platforms.
