The Joint Undertaking "Shift2Rail" has published a call with Deadline 30 March 2017.
Deadline: 30 March 2017
Publication Date: 10 November 2016
Short Call Abstract:
The objectives of this Joint Undertaking are as follows:
Shift2Rail will foster the introduction of better trains to the market (quieter, more comfortable, more dependable, etc.), which will operate on an innovative rail network infrastructure reliably from the first day of service introduction, at a lower life-cycle cost, with more capacity to cope with growing passenger and freight mobility demand. Shift2Rail will also contribute to the paradigm for the modal shift to attract users to rail. For EU passengers, this represents more travel options, more comfort and improved punctuality. For freight forwarder/shippers, rail freight will offer a more cost-effective, punctual and traceable shipment option.
