The prototyping accelerator based on laser-plasma technology (PALLAS) project is aiming to build a laser-plasma injector accelerator (LPI) test facility with the aim to deliver within a few years electron beams of 150-250 MeV, < 5% energy dispersion, >30 pC, <1 mm.mrad emittance beam at 10 Hz with control and stability comparable with RF accelerator. The project approach is based on three axis: advanced laser control, plasma target development and compact electron beam transport and characterization. After a quick overview of the installation progress, updates in laser control will be given. Recent results on plasma gas cell type targets development and testing for localized ionization injection and laser-plasma injector modelling will be reported. The recent progress in the electron beam characterization line will be discussed.
