Shifting to Europe’s Rail
by Carlo Borghini, Executive Director, Europe's Rail Joint Undertaking

Funded through the EU research programme Horizon Europe, Shift2Rail, the joint undertaking for rail research and innovation gets a vote of confidence from both the EU and the rail sector with a decision by the European Member States on a new programming cycle under the name of Europe’s Rail.

The rail industry needs digital clones behind human experts

Although innovation and digital transformation seem all about technology, they actually revolve around humans. Complex algorithms used for Artificial Intelligence (AI) contribute to making people's everyday lives a bit easier. And, especially in the rail industry, AI can help to solve one of the significant challenges: the skills gap. There is a lack of people with the right skills. So, what if technologies like deep learning and AI will allow us to spend less time on repetitive tasks and shift our attention to making changes that impact the sustainability of our environment and natural resources?

FERROCAMPUS of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, demonstration territory for Europe's Rail

By 2030-2050, the modes of transport that can accommodate a significant increase of users and goods traffic must reinvent themselves more than ever, both ecologically and therefore energetically, as well as technologically. The rail sector is constantly being called upon to reinvent itself in order to meet the needs of new mobility services. Within the framework of their competences, the European regions must participate in the rail Europe of tomorrow. This requires the creation of synergies between local, regional but also European actors. SMEs, engineering schools, training centers, industrial groups in the sector are thus called upon to collaborate and address the issues surrounding trades and training, new perspectives of mobility, construction and maintenance.

Fly by rail

Drones are in the news as big groups and start-ups alike compete and/or join forces to launch flying taxis for cities. Whether and when they will take off is anyone’s guess. Less The Fifth Element, more here and now, the railways are already using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for maintenance and surveillance purposes.

Dealing with the unexpected

As public transport services become increasingly customer-focused (the name change from ‘passengers’ says it all), what helps an operator really stand out and strengthen or weaken their brand is how they respond to the unexpected. In such cases, an efficient incident and crisis management solution is a means of helping them maximise service continuity and deliver journey experiences that ensure customers come back for more – and tell others to do the same.
