Railway Research


The European Union funds through its Research and Development Framework programmes a substantial number of research projects in the railway sector. These pages provide you with information on these projects, such as a short description of the project (abstract), the project partners or the duration of the project.

The European Commission's unit Rail Transport and Interoperability has launched several studies to assess different aspects of the freight and passenger rail markets. You will find the results of these reports over here as well.

Information on Seminars, presentations and deliverables made within the framework of the Research Projects can be found under the 'Projects' section.
