2Increase competitiveness of ERTMS The deployment of ERTMS is a priorityFor the first time, the Commission also stresses the need to support ERTMS outside European bordersStrengthening of cooperation of key stakeholders on ERTMSReinforcing the competitiveness and dynamism of the railway sector (interoperability issues)Improve the specification including new technologies

6Test of Rolling Stock Electromagnetic Compatibility for cross-Domain TREND - TEST OF ROLLING STOCK ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY FOR CROSS-DOMAIN INTEROPERABILITY - FP –Test of Rolling Stock Electromagnetic Compatibility for cross-DomainInteroperabilityIn terms of organisation, all the partners of TREND consortium have experience in European projects (contributors and/or coordinators) as described in the individual description of each one in B2.2 section of the proposal. This assures a good base from the management and coordination point of view.From the technical point of view, as shown in the first figure, the consortium perfectly cover the 6 fields that have to be integrated:Rolling stock by CAF,Infrastructure by TV,spot signalling systems by CEIT,GSM-R by INRETS,track circuits systems by LTU and TV (because of Niska specific background)and telecommunication broadcasting services by Y-EMC.CEDEX has a vast expertise on interoperability measurements, as will be presented by Jaime, later on, and this will be a great link for all. Mostly from the point of view of the Electromagnetic Compatibility.From the research point of view, the 4 lines of investigation on signalling systems have to be faced in parallel, in most of the technical WPs. That will build a common vision that leads to the pursued harmonization.This is done applying the expertise and know-how of the members as shown in the expertise chain figure.The effort, in terms of distribution of the PMs per partner is here depicted in that table. It shows the sharing of the tasks into the WPs, and it also shows that the research is well balanced among the partners in the technical WPs. The leaders of each WP are here highlighted, and these work load are also balanced inside the consortium.Motivation:A - Available harmonized EMC standards do not completely address interoperability issues caused by rolling stock interferences with signalling systemsB - These standards do not cover representative worst case conditions worsened by transients in the rolling stock behaviour (mostly due to feeding and track discontinuities)EMC with BTM, GSM-T, track circuits and broadcasting servicesTrain & infrastructure electromagnetic modelingIdentification of worse-case interferers and noise by means of field testing and statistical data processing as well as Laboratory testing&

14“New technologies can do much to help modernise Europe’s railways, while also reducing operational and infrastructure costs and creating new business opportunities for the European rail supply industry”Proposal for a Council Regulation establishing the SHIFT²RAIL Joint Undertaking ,16 December 2013It is the first time ever that the EU Industry is joining forces for such a large scale initiative.Shift²Rail is an “enabler” of Rail R&D at sectorial level.
15SHIFT²RAIL14 March 2014: Political approval by the European Transport Council of a legislative regulation called SHIFT2RAIL to launch an ambitious new European Research & Innovation Programme that aims to:Increase the competitiveness of the EU rail industry to help it retain world leadershipincrease the attractiveness of rail transport.A public-private Joint Undertaking under Horizon 2020 starting in 2015Budget of 920 Million Euros for , including 450 Million from the EU and 470 Million from the IndustryAfter 3 years of intense work by the rail sector for the technical preparatory phase (coordinated by UNIFE)A historical decision for the rail sector all over Europe
