The EU initiative Horizon 2020, which offers around £70 billion of funding for research and development, launched last month.
We now have information available about five project areas currently being developed into potential bids.
These are as follows:
- InterMobRail – A Demonstrator for a new Concept of Railway Mobile Communications Interoperability
- Climate Change – Mapping of the EU rail network to identify a number of different factors
- New Materials
- Seamless Multimodal Travel
- Open European Train Control Systems
You can find more information about each of these listed in the Research Opportunities section of the website.
Anyone with relevant expertise who is interested in joining a consortium should contact Martin Brennan at RSSB (Martin.Brennan@rssb.co.uk).
