In2Track3 is divided into five technical work packages and three administrative. The technical work packages (WP1-5) report to the Technical Management Team (TMT), which is lead by Trafikverket as the Scientific and Technical coordinator (WP7).
If there are issues raised to TMT that need to be raised further, it becomes a matter for the Steering Committee (SC) which is presided by the Coordinator (Trafikverket).
Managing the project, its communication, exploitation and dissemination activities is within the scope of WP6 Project Management and WP8 Dissemination, Exploitation and Communication. The final escalation for all issues is the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking.
The Coordinator reports progress regularly to the Steering Committe of the Innovation Program where the project belongs (In2TrackX is in IP3).
In2Track3 is the fourth project in a row of projects, starting with In2Rail 2015, then In2Track, In2Track2 and finally In2Track3. The main goal with the projects from the start in 2015, is to improve Europe’s railway infrastructure. This is done by gradually increasing the knowledge in each separate field that the project partners’ have brought into the projects.
Some types of development are done as Demonstrators; usually a physical, but sometimes virtual, illustration of increased Technology Readiness Levels, TRLs. As the technology readiness increases, the closer the product gets to industrialisation. In2Track3 mainly has demonstrators on TRL 5-7, which is expected since it is the final project.
Each technical work package fits into a Integrated Technical Demonstrator (ITD, or just TD). The TDs span over a wide array of projects, not just In2TrackX, in order to coordinate the research efforts, find potential cooperations between projects, and monitoring the progress from a European perspective.
