Innovative Intelligent Rail

The In2Rail project is to set the foundations for a resilient, consistent, cost-efficient, high capacity European network by delivering important building blocks that unlock the innovation potential that exists in Shift2Rail: innovative technologies will be explored and resulting concepts embedded in a systems framework where infrastructure, information management, maintenance techniques, energy, and engineering are integrated, optimised, shared and exploited.

In2Rail will make advances towards Shift2Rail objectives: enhancing the existing capacity fulfilling user demand; increasing the reliability delivering better and consistent quality of service; reducing the LCC increasing competitiveness of the EU rail system.

To achieve the above, a holistic approach covering Smart Infrastructures, Intelligent Mobility Management (I2M)and Rail Power Supply and Energy Management will be applied. This project started in May 2015 and it is supported by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission.

In2Rail is one of the lighthouse projects of Shift2Rail and will contribute to Innovation Programmes 2 and 3.
