The PLASA project intends to significantly increase customer experience and system robustness in the European rail sector. It aims at ensuring that the Research & Innovations Activities dealing partially or entirely with railway planning, relevant data or safety issues within the different S2R Innovation Programmes are considered completely and holistically.

Furthermore, this project encompasses additional research and innovation activities, which foster significant improvements in long term railway traffic planning. These coherent improvements will enhance performance and resilience whilst lowering costs in future railway activities.

PLASA consists of two sub-projects, Smart Planning and Safety. The objectives of the project will be achieved by a holistic approach involving partners of the rail industry, the operators and universities.
