Université Gustave Eiffel was founded in 2020. It is an institution that has brought together a university (UPEM), a research institute (IFSTTAR), a school of architecture (Éav&t) and three engineering schools (EIVP, ENSG and ESIEE Paris). Université Gustave Eiffel is active in many research areas. In particular, it accounts for a quarter of French research on the cities of tomorrow and brings together multidisciplinary capabilities to conduct quality research for the benefit of society, offer education tailored to the social and economic world and support public policies. The railway traffic management team of the COSYS-ESTAS and COSYS-LEOST laboratories of Université Gustave Eiffel is issued from IFSTTAR (French institute of science and technology for transport, development and networks). It has many years of experience in railway traffic management optimization. The team has worked in many regional, national and European projects collaborating with several railway undertakings and infrastructure managers on the automation and optimization of the European railway system.
Within SORTEDMOBILITY, Université Gustave Eiffel will be in charge of project coordination. As such it will play a predominant role in WP6 and WP7. Moreover, it will lead WP5 and have a major responsibility in the development of the algorithms for self-organizing railway operations in WP3. Université Gustave Eiffel will also contribute to the definition of KPIs and operational principles in WP1, the identification of demand modeling requirements in WP2 and the integration of software modules in WP4.
