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.

Text:

The 52 projects selected from the 2013 Multi-Annual Call and the 54 from the 2013 Annual Call will use the EU’s financial support to bring forward the completion of the TEN-T network as well as studying innovative ways of reducing the transport sector’s carbon footprint.

The 2013 Multi-Annual Programme Call provides €320 million of funding to 52 projects financing the highest priorities of the TEN-T network, focusing on five modal areas:

* Air Traffic Management (ATM) – 6 projects selected, €9.39 million in funding
* European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) – 10 projects selected, €37.63 million in funding
* Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) – 6 projects selected, €52.81 million in funding
* Motorways of the Sea (MoS) – 15 projects selected, €78.10 million in funding
* Priority Projects (PPs) – 15 projects selected, €52.07 million in funding

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 – 27 projects selected, €27.03 million in funding
* 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 – 27 projects selected, €63.66 million in funding

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.
