Horizon 2020 and Shift2Rail are just two of the projects where universities
are directly involved in partnership with UIC. We could also mention ERRAC (European Rail Research Advisory Council), the technical platform set up by the European Union to cater for the needs of its members with regard
to rail research, which plays a crucial role. Incidentally, UIC also collaborates
indirectly with the universities as a member of the ERRAC.


Shift2Rail aims to optimise rail in Europe through innovation and research.
