With this call for proposals, the Europe’s Rail Joint Undertaking intends to build synergies with the SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking through promoting an integrated air and rail network backbone for a sustainable and energy efficient multimodal transport system in Europe. The topic further supports the work done in Europe’s Rail Flagship Area 1. In addition, with this call, Europe’s Rail will strengthen its exploratory research activities, essential pathfinders for future research and innovation, which cover topics such as noise and vibration, future metro systems, biodiversity, disruptive asset management solutions, extending the network of PhDs, and DAC fleet retrofitting and capacity plan.

An Info Day organised on 4 October 2023 took place online and gave participants an overview of the Europe’s Rail Research and Innovation Programme. It also introduced the possibility of getting involved in making rail a more attractive transport mode both for people and businesses in Europe. You can download the presentations and watch the recordings of the Info Day.

More information on the call topics is available on the Europe’s Rail Joint Undertaking website.
