Multimodal Public Transport Safety
Institute for the Protection and the Security of the Citizen
Acronym: ECCAIRS Activities
In 2009 ECCAIRS will facilitate the assessment of the integrated information in the aviation domain while at the same time supporting the other two public transport sectors in evaluating (maritime) and setting up (railways) their initial data collection and integration networks.
Specifically, the mission of ECCAIRS for 2009 is to enable the assessment of aviation safety information, to start-up the integration of maritime safety information and to check the feasibility of collecting railways safety information.
Focus of the activity will move to the assessment of the collected safety data, initially in the aviation sector, later on in FP7 in the complete public transport sector. During 2009 work in this area will start with an inventory of best practices applied in the EU and in leading international organisations.
Together with the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) the European Marine Casualty Information Platform (EMCIP), based on the ECCAIRS infrastructure already applied in aviation, will be started up and put in production. Together with the European Railways Agency (ERA) a prototype of an EU railways safety reporting platform, based on a similar approach, will be developed and evaluated.
