The European Commission (EC) has launched a ‘Call for Proposals’ for co-funded projects under the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) annual program. The EC has announced that EUR200 million (US$255.7 million) of funding will be available for 2012 projects. The annual funding will focus on five priorities: promotion of the development of an integrated and multi-modal transport system; promotion of infrastructure development contributing to mitigation and adaptation to climate change and reducing transport’s impact on the environment; acceleration or facilitation of the implementation of TEN-T projects; support for public-private partnerships and innovative financial instruments; and support for the long term implementation of the TEN-T network, in particular the development of corridors that enable a co-ordinated implementation of the network.
The TEN-T program aims to create an effective trans-European network that will benefit all European citizens by allowing more efficient and environmentally friendly transport, while simultaneously reinforcing economic and social cohesion across the continent.
The new call for proposals is intended to complement the already existing funding for TEN-T program, according to Siim Kallas, vice president and EU Commissioner for Transport. He said, “It will support Member States in their efforts to undertake complex projects aimed at improving and completing the TEN-T network. This investment will provide Member States with valuable assistance at a time of economic difficulties. Once completed, the trans-European transport network will directly benefit citizens and businesses.” The deadline for submission is April 13, 2012.
