The use of formal modelling and verification is recommended by several standards in the development of highly critical systems. However, the standards do not prescribe a pro- cess that enables a seamless integration of formalisation activities into the development process. In this paper, we propose a model and an automated tool support for an iterative formalisation- driven development of safety-critical systems in the Event-B framework. Event-B supports correct-by-construction develop- ment and provides the designers with a continuous feedback on the correctness of models and corresponding system require- ments, including safety. To automate the proposed formalisation- driven development, we present a prototype of an automated tool support relying on the novel OSLC technology. It allows us to seamlessly integrate derivation of system requirements with formal modelling and proof-based verification.
