The EU project Shift2Rail takes a holistic approach to railway development in Europe. The aim is to sustainably strengthen European industry, create jobs and develop the railway system to meet tomorrow’s transport needs. The project includes about 70 companies and organizations from all over Europe and the Swedish Transport Administration coordinates research for Sweden.
The Swedish Transport Administration contributes to Shift2Rail by, among other things:
- create solutions for how the capacity of the railway system can be used as efficiently as possible
- develop methods for predictive maintenance where and when sensors in the system and in vehicles signal need to be replaced or repaired
- develop and demonstrate solutions for more efficient freight transport such as; digital automatic coupler (DAC), longer and heavier trains, Intelligent video port (IVG) and more.
The seminar will take place via Skype, Thursday 15 April at 13.30–15.30. Please note that the event will be in Swedish.
