The INNOWAG project responds to the first Open Call issued by the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking, as part of Shift2Rail Horizon 2020 programme. It specifically addresses the topic S2R-OC-IP5-03-2015: Intelligent freight wagon with predictive maintenance. INNOWAG is complementary to the FR8RAIL project, which responded to the topic S2R-CFM-IP5-01-2015: Development of functional requirements for sustainable and attractive European rail freight.

The concept underpinning the INNOWAG project aims to address the actual needs of rail freight for increasing its competitiveness and attractiveness. The INNOWAG project, therefore, aims at contributing to the development of a rail freight service that fits the needs of modern manufacturing and supply chain.
