The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) is a major element for economic growth and job creation in Europe because the existence of an integrated, technology-led and user-friendly transport system is regarded as a key factor for the competitiveness of the UE. The TEN-T is essential to facilitate the mobility of persons, goods and services and thus strengthening the internal market and the economic and social cohesion of the EU.
Envisioning such a network, the European Commission's TEN-T programme dedicates financial support towards the realisation of important transport infrastructure projects - in line with the overreaching goal of European competitiveness, job creation and cohesion. The projects represent all transport modes – air, rail, road, and maritime/inland waterway – plus logistics and intelligent transport systems, and involve all EU Member States.
The trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) assures the technical and financial implementation and management of the Trans-European Transport Network programme. SHOTLIST
