Final Report: Work to support with a cost-benefit analysis the definition of migration paths for the implementation of S2R selected innovations on the European network

This report presents the results of the financial and socio-economic cost-benefit analysis for the deployment of the Shift2Rail JU (S2R) innovations in four illustrative scenario of typical rail segments. The analysis covers the cost and benefits of four scenarios related to four segments of the rail sector: high speed, metro, regional passenger trains and freight transport.

The goal of this CBA is to assess the financial and societal impact of migration paths of innovations over a 30-year period. Migration paths are developed for each innovation, accounting for potential differences for specific use cases, herein after System Platform Demonstrators (SPDs). These paths determine the simulated implementation order and actual deployment timeframe of each technology innovation.
