Strategic Vision for the European Railway Agency: the Engine for Change
Taking stock of the current situation, the European Railway Agency has analysed the political, economic, social, and technological environment of the European railway sector to formulate its vision for 2020:
As a respected European authority, the Agency will be the engine for change driving the Single European Railway Area.
Our ambition is not only to champion our new tasks as a European authority - issuing vehicle authorisation and safety certificates, and acting as system authority for ERTMS – which we are mandated to perform by the technical pillar of the 4th railway package.
We want to achieve 7 strategic objectives – from Europe becoming the world leader in railway safety to promoting rail transport to enhance its market share, to fostering the Agency’s reputation in the world.
