3 Introduction on UNIFE and EU Research The railway supply industry invests around EUR 1000 Million each year in research and development.UNIFE represent an industrial sector which account for a total world market of EUR 146 Bn and provides 400,000 direct and indirect jobs in EuropeInnovating and harmonising products and technologies are a necessity for the rail market to deploy all its potential, and for its stakeholders to deliver cost-effective services for intermediate and final clients.Rail transport in Europe is a future-oriented industry and is determined to offer an even more attractive, affordable, safe, clean, competitive, high capacity and reliable transport mode.The rail sector organisations, UNIFE, UIC, CER, EIM, EURNEX and UITP are cooperating in ERRAC, the European Rail Research Advisory Council.
4 Aim ETP (European Commission): ERRAC in briefSet up in 2001 to enhance collaborative European rail research by:Building consensus among stakeholders.Improving synergies between EU, national and private rail research (identify priorities).Strengthening and re-organizing research and development efforts.Effective pooling of human and material resources.Launching ambitious co-operative research plans.ERRAC is ruled by a share of Chairmanship between Supply Industries, Railways operators and academia.Today it is chaired by Mr. Josef Doppelbauer (Bombardier Transportation), supported by two Vice-Chairmen, Mr. Andy Doherty (NetworkRail) and Mr. Manuel Pereira (IST).Aim ETP (European Commission):European Technology platforms were set up as a stakeholder for a sector, led by industry, with the objective of defining medium to long-term research and technological objectives and laying down markers for achieving them.

10 What will SHIFT²RAIL deliver by 2020? Implementable results through a long-term strategic programme built around key research clusters segmented in 5 Innovation Programs:IP1 - Energy & Mass Efficient Technologies for High Capacity Green TrainsIP2 - Advance Traffic Management & Control Systems for the Improvement of Mainline & Urban Rail Capacity & ResilienceIP3 - The Cost efficient - High Capacity Green InfrastructureIP4 - The IT Solutions for a Seamless Attractive Railway Transport SystemIP5 - The Technologies for Sustainable & Attractive European Freight TransportFor each IPs Technology Demonstrators, each addressing specific topics, will integrate innovative technologies and develop prototypes tested in labs to generate future competitive sub-systems.All innovations from all IPs are validated, tested, and combined in a real rail environment to demonstrate the expected benefits at system level: we call that System Platform Demonstrations. Five System Platform Demonstrations will be developed on HIGH SPEED, URBAN/SUBURBAN, REGIONAL, FREIGHT TRAIN, and INFRASTRUCTURE platforms.
