EU supports key TEN-T infrastructure projects with over €320 million

Date: 14/08/2014

In the last Calls of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) Programme the European Commission selected a total of 106 projects that will benefit from over €320 million in EU support for improving transport infrastructure across Europe.

The 2013 Multi-Annual Programme Call provides €230 million of funding to 52 projects financing the highest priorities of the TEN-T network, focusing on five modal areas:

1. Air Traffic Management (ATM)
2. European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS)
3. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)
4. Motorways of the Sea (MoS)
5. Priority Projects (PPs)

The 2013 Annual Programme Call gives financing for a similar number of projects (54 in total) covering the different modes of transport, but also focusing on the decarbonisation of transport. This Call grants €90.7 million in total funding in two main priority areas:

  • Priority 1 – Studies concerning the acceleration/facilitation of the implementation of TEN-T projects
  • Priority 2 - Measures to promote innovation and new technologies for transport infrastructure and facilities contributing to decarbonisation or the reduction of the external costs in general

The projects will be monitored by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), working together with the project beneficiaries across the Member States and under the auspices of the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission.

These last TEN-T selection decisions pave the way for the first Calls for Proposals which will be issued under the transport part of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) in September 2014.
