FOSTER RAIL STARTS RIGHT ON TRACK
The tasks shall be performed in consultation with the European Commission (EC) and Member States and Associated States (MS/AS).
Among its main strategic objectives, FOSTER RAIL shall specifically: develop Rail Business Scenarios, as well as an updated Strategic Rail Research and Innovation Agenda (SRRIA); and define implementation plans. In addition, FOSTER RAIL will support the establishment of the interfaces between ERRAC and SHIFT²RAIL, the proposed rail joint technology initiative (JTI).
The project will also assist the preparation of the Transport Research Arena TRA2014 conference to be held in Paris-La Défense on 14-17 April 2014 as the main showcase of transportation research in Europe.
Through FOSTER RAIL, the ERRAC website has been rejuvenated. The platform and the project are now presented at www.errac.org
