Horizon 2020 is the main European research framework programme,
covering all scientific and technological topics (see H2020).
In the railway sector, most of research projects now refer to the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking.
CNC participated in several projects, e.g., IT2RAIL, one of the Shift2Rail lighthouse projects,
which deals with ICT technologies to support passengers during all phases of their journey,
from planning to booking tickets, from tracking their trip to managing any possible disturbances.
CNC contributed to the definition of an Interoperability Framework, which will allow several
distributed applications to exchange data, based on a common semantic language.
In another project, GoF4R, CNC provided its experience in regulation and standardisation
in order to define a governance scheme for the Interoperability Framework.
Additionally, CNC provides the Cooperation Tool service to many projects,
including all projects of Shift2Rail Members. This includes also the project public Web sites.
