The European Union Agency for Railways has contracted a consortium led by Ineco to identify and gather data on the costs and benefits of the railway sector.

Ineco and its partner ECORYS will provide the Agency with the foundations for drafting its 2018 Rail System Report, whose purpose will be to verify whether the actions taken have had the expected effects on the railway sector. This is part of the Agency’s work of monitoring the key indicators for the development of the sector. The consortium has designed a methodology that includes the distribution of questionnaires to the sector; analysis of information from public sources and interviews with the most important stakeholders in the European sector, such as national security agencies, infrastructure managers, operators, manufacturers, etc.
