​RINA SERVICES and the main stakeholders of the ERTMS HIPPOPS Working Group successfully delivered their contributions in the framework of the Dissemination Event held in Sofia on November 23rd 2017. 

After 27 months of fruitful collaboration between Italian, French, Belgian and Bulgarian National Safety Authorities and Notified Bodies, the Working Group presented its findings during the dissemination event. RINA SERVICES, acting as the Action Coordinator, has managed the proposed action and ensured the quality of the work carried out. As a part of the Connecting Europe Facility program, ERTMS HIPPOPS project aims to simplify, facilitate and harmonize the procedures for the placing in service of on-board and track-side ERTMS subsystems. On the basis of the involvement of European key players (ANSF, EPSF, IAJA, CERTIFER, BELGORAIL, TINSA and RINA SERVICES), a shared and common vision was proposed in order to ensure a harmonized and simplified framework for the deployment of the ERTMS in the railway network in Europe in compliance with national and EU strategy.
