The main objective of In2Track project is to set the foundations for a resilient, consistent, cost-efficient, high capacity European network by delivering important building blocks that unlock the innovation potential that have been identified as part of the Shift2Rail Innovation Programme 3.
The specific objectives of IN2TRACK are divided into three parts;
A whole-system approach, which is defined as the system boundaries extending from dynamic wheel-rail interaction (loading input) through to degradation of the S&C system, sub-systems, individual components, and underlying track foundation, will also be at the heart of IN2TRACK on how to reach the objectives.

Invitation to the Final Conference of the Shift2Rail JU Funded IP3 Project IN2TRACK to be held at UIC in Paris on 22 January 2019.
Here are the overall objectives of IN2TRACK regarding track and infrastructure assets:
Enhancing and optimising the switches & crossings and track systems in order to ensure the optimal line usage and capacity
Investigating novel ways of extending the life of bridges and tunnel assets through new approaches to maintaining, repairing and upgrading these structures
Developing and adopting a holistic, whole system-approach
A whole-system approach, which is defined as the system boundaries extending from dynamic wheel-rail interaction (loading input) through to degradation of the S&C system, sub-systems, individual components, and underlying track foundation, achieve the objectives of the project.
Over the past 3 years, IN2TRACK partners have been working on methods to reduce noise and vibration. They have also developed new techniques for repair and upgrade to reduce traffic disruption. Their work includes the development of safer methods of assessment for tunnels and bridges, such as the use of embedded sensors for self-diagnostics and condition monitoring.
IN2TRACK will be over in a few months and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to present the results of this exciting project.
Please register and find more information about the conference on the link below:
Registration is mandatory and free of charge but only a limited number of participants can be welcomed on a first-come-first-served basis. So please, register as soon as you can.
Looking forward to seeing you in Paris in January,
