Laying the tracks for a truly 21st century European railway
In this edition of Research*EU magazine we take a look at the work of the latest EU-funded projects supported under Shift2Rail is enlightening. From smart solutions for safer rail transport to next-generation computing and communication systems, novel technologies hint at what future railway could look like. At the same time, joint stakeholder reflection under projects like Smart-Rail show that a real mental shift is taking place and could help the sector step up its game over the next few years. It’s definitely worth the trouble: if Shift2Rail’s ambitions are any indication, an additional EUR 49 billion of EU GDP, 140 000 additional jobs and EUR 20 billion of additional exports could reward the sector’s efforts by 2030.
Our special feature is followed by the usual thematic sections on health, society, transport, environment, agriculture & forestry, industry, ICT, space and fundamental research. The magazine closes with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
