Call for proposals under the annual work programme for grants in the field of the Trans-European Energy Network TEN-E Closed!


The aid to be granted on the basis of the annual work programme will be an important part of the pillar of Community financing of the trans-European transport network during the period 2007 - 2013.

  • 30 priority projects set out in annex III of the TEN Guidelines.
  • Measures to develop key links and interconnections to eliminate bottlenecks.
  • Measures to develop an interoperable railway network, with the exception of measures for the deployment of ERTMS, especially for TEN-T conventional railway lines.
  • Measures to promote maritime transport and inland waterways.
  • Measures to face the most urgent problems of airports.
  • Measures to promote good standards of comfort and safety as well as to guarantee a sustainable integration of Road infrastructure in the global transport chain
