Railway interoperable manufacture and modular safety (TRAINSAFE)

Objective

The European railway system is undergoing two major changes:
- Separation of the infrastructure management activity from that of train operation.
- The opening up of the rail network to new entrants.
There is a real danger of critical knowledge being dispersed and lost through rail industry fragmentation. This will put increased pressure on a network already faced with new challenges in the fields of international services and tram/train intermodality. Meeting the challenge demands a new global or holistic approach to the safety of the entire rail system to ensure that any actor in the European railway system is able to maintain the same high level of safety achieved prior to the changes in their relationships.
