A paper was presented at the World Congress on Railway Research (WCRR 2016) in Milan, focussing on IT2Rail work.

The title of the paper is: The “open web of transportation data” as a shared networked environment for the realization of the Single European Railway Area.

The paper was awarded the "Best Paper" prize in the Passenger Mobility from Door to Door theme.
The paper presents the market scenario and technology solutions for door-to-door mobility, which will allow a better travel experience and will make railways more attractive for travellers.
