The mission of the S2R JU is to coordinate and manage the Union research and innovation investments in the European rail sector. In this respect, its main objective is to implement the S2R Programme, research and innovation activities in the railway sector in Europe, through the collaboration between stakeholders in the entire railway value chain, also outside the traditional rail sector, with particular attention to SMEs, research and technology centres and universities.

Priorities and funded actions:

– S2R-CFM-CCA-01-2017: Improving railway services for users and operators
– S2R-CFM-IP1-01-2017: Development of new technological concepts towards the next generation of rolling stock, applied to major subsystems such as Carbody, Running Gear, Brakes, Doors and Modular interiors
– S2R-CFM-IP2-01-2017: Enhancing railway signalling systems thanks to applying satellite positioning; developing an on-board safe Train Integrity; applying formal methods approach and standardised interfaces, and enhancing Traffic Management System (TMS) functions
– S2R-CFM-IP3-01-2017: Smart system energy management solutions and future station solutions
– S2R-CFM-IP4-01-2017: Technical framework for attractive railway services
– S2R-CFM-IP4-02-2017: IP4 overall integration and demonstration
