Highlights - Results of recent CEF transport calls - Committee on Transport and Tourism

Multimodal connections - Container transportation from port via rail.
The 140 projects were selected for funding via two competitive calls for proposals launched in October 2019 (regular CEF Transport call) and November 2019 (CEF Transport Blending Facility call). The EU's financial contribution, almost €2.2 billion, comes in the form of grants combined with additional financing from banks.

With this budget, the EU will deliver on its climate objectives set out in the European Green Deal. Strong emphasis is on projects reinforcing railways, including cross-border links and connections to ports and airports. Inland waterway transport is boosted through better multimodal connections and in the maritime sector, priority is given to short-sea-shipping projects based on alternative fuels.

The presentation will take place on Thursday morning, 24 September 2020 in room ANTALL 2Q2 from where it will be webstreamed.
