IT2Rail final event

18 April 2018

On behalf of the IT2Rail Shift2Rail Lighthouse Project coordinator UNIFE, we would like to cordially invite you to attend the IT2Rail final event to be held on 18 April 2018 at Eisvogel in Vienna (Austria).

Launched in May 2015, IT2Rail aims at providing a new seamless travel experience, giving access to a complete multimodal travel offer which connects the first and last mile to long distance journeys. (

The IT2Rail event will start at 09:00 (AM) and finish at 15:00. You are also cordially invited to the high-level session on the closure of the four Shift2Rail Lighthouse Projects (Roll2Rail, In2Rail, IT2Rail and Smart Rail) to be held on 19 April from 15:00 to 16:30 at Waggon-31. This high-level session will provide you with an overview from the European Commission, Shift2Rail and the sector on the results and impacts of the Shift2Rail lighthouse projects:

• In2Rail (coordinated by Network Rail): The project sets the foundations for a resilient, consistent, cost-efficient, high capacity European network by exploring innovative technologies that will result in concepts embedded in a systems framework where infrastructure, information management, maintenance techniques, energy, and engineering are integrated, optimised, shared and exploited. (

• Roll2Rail (coordinated by UNIFE): The project aims to develop key technologies and to remove already identified blocking points for radical innovation in the field of railway vehicles, as part of a longer term strategy to revolutionise the rolling stock for the future. (

• SMART-RAIL (coordinated by TNO): The project focuses on innovative solutions and their implementation in the rail freight sector. The project aims to improve the five main aspects: reliability, visibility, flexibility, costs and lead time. (
