Call for proposals under the annual work programme for grants in the field of the Trans-European Transport Network for 2011 TEN-T-2011-2 Closed!

Objectives

The first objective of this call is to promote the development of an integrated and environmentally friendly transport system. This will include studies and works for inter-modal platforms and the interconnection nodes of different modes of transport, with the objective of increasing the contribution of 'low carbon' transport modes to freight transport.

The second objective is to promote infrastructure development contributing to mitigation and adaptation to climate change, through studies and the preparation of deployment projects facilitating the introduction and use of new technologies and alternative fuels, as well as through studies and works supporting the reduction of the impact of maritime transport on air pollution.

The third objective is to accelerate/facilitate the implementation of TEN-T projects, with the aim of creating a mature project pipeline for 2014 and beyond. This will include studies for all modes and works for mature projects in the rail, road, ports and inland waterways sectors, and projects aiming at European network benefits in support of the Single European Sky (SES) policy.

The fourth objective is to increase the involvement of the private sector in the development and financing of Union-supported transport infrastructure projects, notably through the implementation of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). The priority seeks to support the feasibility analysis of a PPP arrangement as part of early- stage project development as well as to assist more mature projects, having already chosen a PPP arrangement as their preferred structure, to continue to develop the PPP.

The fifth objective is to support the long term implementation of the TEN-T network, in particular the development of corridors that shall enable a coordinated implementation of the network, by supporting projects embedding multimodal aspects, investment options and efficient managerial structures.
