CONNECTIVE project (“Connecting and Analysing the Digital Transport Ecosystem”) aims to be the technical backbone of S2R´s Innovation Programme 4 (IP4), which addresses the provision of “IT solutions for attractive Railway services”.

CONNECTIVE will provide other S2R-IP4 projects with a technical framework and a set of tools that will foster the digital transformation of rail and in general all the transport ecosystem, enabling an unprecedented multimodal travel experience and improving the fit between supply and demand. Its outcomes will provide new levels of interoperability and seamless access to all transport data and services in a multimodal and distributed environment, while offering a common business intelligence to extract insights of the ecosystem, valuable for both users and service providers.

The project addresses two of the Technology Demonstrators (TD) identified in the MAAP, namely:

  • TD4.1-Interoperability Framework: aims at allowing more efficient interconnection between heterogeneous systems. It will foster the digital transformation the transport ecosystem by enabling the creation of an open “Web of Transportation”, a shared distributed database of transportation data and services provided and consumed by information systems independently from their internal organization and representation.
  • TD4.6 - Business Analytics: aims at providing a common business intelligence foundation to monitor, analyse and generate data from the IP4 ecosystem. It will leverage the importance of the data managed and generated in the transport ecosystem, allowing to obtain valuable insights of the ecosystem from a multimodal, door-to-door trans-European Mobility approach.
Framework and tools developed by the project will be used by the other IP4 TDs in the provision of multimodal door-to-door experiences.

Project Structure

WP1 - Interoperability Framework

Interoperability Framework deals with the specification, design, and implementation of the Interoperability Framework that will provide seamless access to all transport data and services in a multimodal and distributed environment; resulting on a global services and data market place, liberated from technological barriers and where different systems can interoperate regardless data formats and communication protocols

WP2 - Business Analytics

Business Analytics aims to specify, design, and implement the required techniques; and tools to provide a common business intelligence and Business Analytics (for analytical, forecasting and visualisation purposes) foundation for all Shift²Rail transport product and service providers.

WP3 - Technical Coordination and System Coherence

Technical Coordination and System Coherence will assure the coordination inside the activities of the project, but also with the other TDs inside the IP4. It will be responsible for integrating and testing the WP1 and WP2 technical results.

WP4 - Dissemination and Communication

Dissemination and Communication will encompass all the activities related to the promotion of the project activities and results, and the exploitation and sustainability plans, including in the scientific domain, and their presentation at public events.

WP5 - Project Management

Project Management will be in charge of the overall administrative and financial aspects in compliance with the general conditions and provisions set forth within the Grant Agreement and the Horizon 2020 guidelines.
