IP3 will enable a resilient, consistent, cost-efficient, high capacity and attractive European network by delivering operation critical research, development, and innovation for rail infrastructure. This will be achieved by the adoption of a whole system approach linking infrastructure and station design with maintenance actions, asset management and energy management.
IP3 will target the overall Shift2Rail objectives:
·  Enhancing the existing CAPACITY fulfilling user demand of the European rail system;
·  Increasing the RELIABILITY delivering better and consistent quality of service of the European rail system;
·  Reducing the LIFE CYCLE COST (LCC) increasing competitiveness of the European rail system and European rail supply industry.

IP3 will deliver outcomes which will produce a step change in the way that the European rail network is developed and operated, such that the infrastructure will improve the economic viability and attractiveness of the network.

IN2DREAMS will take up some of the key results from past and current EU R&D projects such as In2Rail, IT2Rail, MAXBE, TOUCAN, INITIATE, MERLIN etc. and will contribute, together with the corresponding CFM Projects IN2SMART and IN2STEMPO, to the EU rail infrastructure vision of IP3 in line with the goals set in the 2011 EC Transport White Paper.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No: 777596
