Convocatorias Shift2Rail: Búsqueda de usuario final del sector de transporte ferroviario para desarrollar un proyecto sobre composites y materiales innovadores para material rodante


Búsqueda de socios
Una oficina técnica francesa con experiencia en proyectos busca socios con el fin de presentar una propuesta a la convocatoria Shift2rail (S2R-CFM-IP1-01-2017 o S2R-OC-IP1-01-2017). El objetivo es desarrollar y diseñar nuevos conceptos tecnológicos con materiales innovadores y composites para material rodante de la próxima generación. De esta forma se pretende mejorar la seguridad, confort, impacto ambiental, fiabilidad y rendimiento. La oficina busca un usuario final del sector de transporte ferroviario con el fin de establecer un acuerdo de investigación. La fecha límite de la convocatoria es el 30 de marzo de 2017 y el plazo para presentar expresiones de interés finaliza el 15 de febrero.


Shift2Rail calls: End User sought (rail transportation) to set up a collaborative project about composites and innovative materials for rolling stock
A French engineering office with experience in projects, (a German-based company and a laboratory from UK) is looking to cooperate to submit a proposal to one Shift2rail call topic (S2R-CFM-IP1-01-2017 or S2R-OC-IP1-01-2017) to develop and design new technological concepts with innovative materials and composites for the next generation of rolling stock. They are looking for end users (esp. from Portugal or Spain) from rail transportation for a research cooperation agreement.
The project aims to enhance the use of composite materials in rolling stock pushing the functionalities integration further and using new materials able to comply with the railway environment requirements.

Structural parts targeted in the calls will be studied like carbodyshell or access door systems. Innovative materials will be investigated to ensure safety aspects (fire/smoke behaviour and mechanical resistance), to increase components reliability and to bring new functionalities and comfort to the passengers. Design will be selected to allow easy assembly and effective joints with respect for maintenance and reparability.

For instance, offering mechanical resistance and insulation (thermal and acoustical) as well as being lightweight, composite sandwich panels admit various applications in car-body. This integration of functions is beneficial, particularly for rail applications where weight reduction is increasingly important from a performance, environmental and European standards point of view.
At last, life cycle assessments studies will quantify environmental impacts and the cost will be analysed to demonstrate the viability of these solutions.

The requested partner is an end user (esp. from Spain or Portugal) from rail transportation looking for innovative technologies for its range of vehicles or parts such as access door system, seats, driver´s desk, in order to submit an R-Y-D collaborative project under H2020 Shit2Rail:
- type of action: RIA Research and Innovation action (single-stage process)
- deadline: 30 March 2017
- deadline for EoIs: 15 February 2017
