CAF & S2R

Shift2Rail is the first European rail joint technology initiative to seek focused research and innovation (R&I) and market-driven solutions by accelerating the integration of new and advanced technologies into innovative rail product solutions. Shift2Rail will promote the competitiveness of the European Rail Industry and will meet the changing EU transport needs. Through the R&I carried out within this Horizon2020 initiative, the necessary technology will be created to complete the Single European Railway Area (SERA).

CAF is one of the 8 Founding Members of Shift2Rail and is a member of its Governing Board. CAF plays an active role in the initiative, being one of its main responsibilities acting as coordinator of the Innovation Program 1 - "Cost-efficient and reliable trains, including high-capacity trains and high-speed trains".
