The EU-project INNOTRACK – a description of highlights and how they have been implemented
Paper in proceedings, 2011
The EC-funded project INNOTRACK focused on the development of cost effective high performance track infrastructure, by providing innovative solutions that result in significant cost reductions of both investments and maintenance of infrastructure. Operative between September 2006 and December 2009 and covering a total turnover in the order of 25 M€, the project has delivered a multitude of results that are now being implemented in operation. The paper gives an overview of the project and where more information can be found; focuses on four “highlights” and discusses their character and how they are being implemented; and finally discusses some general issues regarding a successful realization and implementation process for such a large research and development project.
