The main objective of Ben@Rail is to strengthen the effectiveness of EU-funded R&I activities in the railway research domain amongst the rail sector stakeholders, in order to ensure a tight adherence of the innovations stemming from Europe’s Rail Joint Undertaking and its Master Plan to the needs of railway stakeholders and final users.

The main objective of Ben@Rail is supported by five specific objectives:

  • To identify the requirements of the railway sector stakeholders vis a vis EU-funded research;
  • To review, analyse and support Europe’s Rail JU Master Plan in light of the stakeholders’ expected benefits and wider societal challenges;
  • To collect, analyse, and elaborate available data from rail R&I activities to measure the EU funding programmes levels of efficacy in responding to European societal issues;
  • To apply a scientifically proved methodology to assess the effects of R&I activities on the stakeholders’ expectations;
  • To communicate and promote the outcome of the analysis to the scientific community, rail stakeholders and policymakers in the new framework of Europe’s Rail Master Plan.

Ben@Rail intends to quantify the efficacy of EU-funded R&I activities, providing evidence-based research to assess the extent to which the foreseen technological and operational innovations resulting from the work of Shift2Rail, and expected from its future successor, respond to a clear societal case and produce benefits to the railway stakeholders and users.
