Based in France, the ERA is helping to integrate European railway systems by making trains safer and able to cross national borders without stopping.
Since 2006, the ERA has:
- worked to develop economically viable common technical standards and safety measures and targets in cooperation with the rail sector, national authorities, EU institutions and other bodies.
- reported on rail safety in the EU.
- led efforts to create uniform signalling standards throughout Europe.
The ERA has its headquarters in Valenciennes and international conference facilities in Lille.
