Multi Annual Action Plan

*The Shift2Rail JU Multi-Annual Action Plan (MAAP) consists of two parts:

  • Part A – Executive View, adopted by the Shift2Rail JU Governing Board on 27 October 2017;
  • Part B – Technical Content, adopted by the Shift2Rail JU Governing Board on 14 November 2019.

There is a need to maintain the original MAAP adopted by the Shift2Rail JU Governing Board on 27 November 2015 as reference document in cases of doubts with regard, for example, type of assets that the Members other than the Union committed to provide for demonstration activities.

The current MAAP is not designed to shape the R&I activities of the next generation of a rail research and innovation Programme as from 2021. It is based on the legal commitments undertaken by the Members and it takes into account most of the evolution that has happened in recent years. For each TD/WA a link with the Innovation Capabilities of the MAAP Part A has been made. A clear focus has been put on demonstration activities. They are now reported in each TD with their TRL level and market application through a dedicated section.

Financial Rules

*The Decision of the S2R JU Governing Board n° 11/2019 dated 20/12/2019 adopting the Financial Rules of the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking entered into force on 1 January 2020 and shall apply from this date. The former financial rules of the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking adopted by the Governing Board on 11 December 2015 (n° 21/2015) are repealed with effect from the date of entry into force of this Decision.
