EC Funds Transport Development, Invites Proposals

Press Release
Thursday, November 29, 2012

The European Commission calls for proposals in 2012 Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) €1.015-billion funding program.

The money is available to finance European transport infrastructure projects in all transport modes – air, rail, road, and maritime/inland waterways – plus logistics and intelligent transport systems, in all EU Member States.

The TEN-T multi-annual programme traditionally finances the highest priorities of the TEN-T network. This year's multi-annual call focuses on six fields with €1.015 billion of total indicative budget available:

Projects of interest in the maritime sector include:

·          River Information Services (RIS), involving traffic management infrastructure on the inland waterway network: indicative budget €10 million
·          Motorways of the Sea (MoS) providing viable alternatives for congested roads by shifting freight to sea routes: indicative budget €80 million
·          Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), including the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS), promoting inter-modality and improvement of the safety and reliability of the network: indicative budget €50 million

The TEN-T Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) manages the technical and financial implementation of the TEN-T programme, under the auspices of Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport. The TEN-T EA is holding an Info Day today in Brussels to help potential applicants better understand the call priorities, prepare their proposals and learn about the evaluation process.
 
The deadline for the submission of proposals is 28 February 2013.
