The collaborative approach is the characterizing element of ER.I.C. and the principle on which the whole initiative is based. Sharing values, as well as a vision, for the development of intermodal transport that combines sustainability and competitiveness leads to always seeking new areas of in-depth analysis ranging from the most operational to the highly strategic areas.

In the upcoming years, in fact, the Cluster intends to launch targeted investigations on horizontal issues in new areas such as research, innovation, digitization, big data and technological upgrade of equipment.

These activities are aimed at improving the system of services and the accessibility of the territory, integrating infrastructural  aspects, technological innovation and qualification of human resources at the service of rail freight transport.
