Agreement signed between #UIC and #S2R

The International Union of Railways (UIC) and the S2R public-private partnership joint venture set up to implement the Shift2Rail initiative have signed a memorandum of understanding. 

The document provides for continued cooperation on the implementation of innovative solutions within the framework of the Shift2Rail initiative using a systematic approach that meets the operational requirements of the railway sector.

The parties emphasize the importance of a document that opens up opportunities for closer interaction and aims to increase the competitiveness of the railway sector through the introduction of innovative solutions. 

The active cooperation of UIC member organizations with S2R contributes to the creation of an environmentally friendly, mobile transport system that meets user expectations.

An example of the joint activities of the UIC and S2R was the work on the project to create a 5G – 5GRAIL railway radio communication system, which is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 program (computer graphics, source: Shift2Rail).
