About Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking

The Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking (S2R JU) is a new public - private partnership in the rail sector, established under Horizon 2020, to provide a platform for coordinating research activities with a view to driving innovation in the rail sector in the years to come. It was established on 7 July 2014, following the entry into force of Council Regulation (EU) No 642/2014 of 16 June 2014 establishing the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking. The rationale for setting up a Joint Undertaking is that the pooling and coordination of R&I efforts at EU level stands a better chance of success given the transnational nature of the infrastructure and technologies to be developed in support of the Single European Railway Area, and the need to achieve a sufficient mass of resources. Rail research conducted within Shift2Rail must contribute to addressing the challenges faced by the rail sector through a comprehensive and coordinated approach to research and innovation focusing on the needs of the rail system and of its users.
