Through cross-sectoral recommendations, the Industry4Europe coalition contributes to the future EU industrial strategy announced by European Commission President-Elect Ursula von der Leyen. The Joint Paper presents concrete industrial policy proposals in seven priority fields; business-friendly policy environment, sustainability at business core, upgraded skills and training, enhanced research and innovation, investment and improved access to finance, reinforcement of the European Single Market and strengthened trade and international market access. The 149 industry organisations behind Industry4Europe stand united in their repeated calls for an ambitious and long-term EU industrial strategy that must help Europe remain a hub for a leading, smart, innovative and sustainable industry, that provides quality jobs and benefits all Europeans and future generations.

    UNITEL Position Paper - EU funded and coordinated FRMCS pilot projects

    The on-going FRMCS project and Shift2Rail work streams represent important steps in defining the future communication system for railway. However, the railway communication supply industry has identified a major challenge to industrialise the solutions and ensure readiness for a commercial rollout, similar to the challenge faced when GSM-R was introduced. UNIFE is convinced that an initiative to support the first European market application and piloting of FRMCS would represent an essential step to successfully introduce the new communication system into the railway networks. This UNITEL Position Paper on ‘EU funded and coordinated FRMCS pilot projects’ outlines the challenge identified by the railway communication supply industry and highlights the need and purpose of FRMCS pilot projects in moving towards the future communication system for railways
