ERRAC - The European Rail Research Advisory Council

ERRAC, the European Rail Research Advisory Council, is the principal contact for the European Commission regarding rail research at European level.

ERRAC published in 2014 its updated the Strategic Rail Research and Innovation Agenda (SRRIA), providing guidance for developing Research Programmes specific to the rail sector and defining strategic goals up to 2050.

This process has been supported since 2013 by the project FOSTER RAIL, which was set up to develop further detailed roadmaps by selected priorities areas.

In addition to this research work, the Evaluation Working Group continues to evaluate projects funded by the past Framework Programmes as well as monitoring ongoing projects. The work of the group has been valuable for ERRAC as well as the European Commission regarding the preparation of the FP7 and Horizon 2020 work programmes.
