3 1. Overview 3

4 Key challenges of the rail sector 1. Insufficient growth of rail markets. 2. Poor consumer satisfaction. 3. Fragmentation of rail markets and diversity of national standards. 4. Low profitability due to product customisation, capital-intensity of investments, long product lifecycles, and long and costly authorisation procedures. 5. Reliance on public subsidies. 6. Increasing global competition in the rail industry. 7. Technical know-how in decline with 30% of sector workforce retiring within next 10 years. 1. Overview 4

5 Key documents and actors European transport strategies : - White paper 2011 – ‘Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area’ - Future of Transport (2009) - Maritime Transport (2009) - Greening transport (2008) - Logistics: Keeping freight moving (2007) - Keep Europe moving Rail strategies and main actors : -Rail: ‘An Integrated Industrial Policy for the Globalisation Era – Putting Competitiveness and Sustainability at Centre Stage’An Integrated Industrial Policy for the Globalisation Era – Putting Competitiveness and Sustainability at Centre Stage -Main actors: UNIFE and ERTRAC 1. Overview 5

6 White Paper – A vision for rail transport 1. Overview 6

7 Why innovation is needed in the rail transport The rail sector needs major and coordinated investments in R&I that respond to market needs and contribute to completing EU transport policy objectives: 1. To reduce the costs of public service obligations 2. To optimise traffic management 3. To reduce the costs of infrastructure maintenance & renewal 4. To increase demand for rail passenger services 5. To increase demand for rail freight services 6. To ensure provision of adequate competence and skilled human resources 1. Overview 7

8 Transport research in Horizon 2020 The proposed budget for transport research is € 7.7 billion, which is the equivalent of 9% of the total Horizon 2020 budget, with 23 % of the budget being reserved for tackling societal challenges. We strive for a balanced approach that takes into account the specifics of each mode (rail, road, waterborne and air transport) while remaining holistic; an approach which reconciles competitiveness with sustainability and which invests both in technology and in relevant socio- economic research. The four main priorities for transport research under Horizon 2020 are: 1. Making transport more sustainable : resource-efficient transport that respects the environment. 2. Making transport and transport systems seamless : better mobility, less congestion, Greater Safety and security. 3. Keeping transport competitive : the European transport industry as a global leader. 4. Making transport research responsive : socio- economic research and forward looking activities for policy-making. 1. Overview 8
