Brussels, October 17, 2019

The European Commission has today launched a call for € 1.4 billion to support key projects through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), the EU’s central funding instrument for infrastructure networks. The investment will help build connections across the continent, while focusing on sustainable transport modes.

Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc said: “To accelerate decarbonisation and contribute to the completion of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T ), we are making full use of the resources available through the Connecting Europe Facility. These investments will be supported by the European Union.” The deadline for applications is 26 February 2020. The “virtual information day” will take up is 7 November 2019.

The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for Transport is the funding instrument to realise European transport infrastructure policy. It aims at supporting investments in building new transport infrastructure in Europe or rehabilitating and upgrading the existing one.
