Grandes proyectos

¿Qué son los grandes proyectos?

Los grandes proyectos son generalmente proyectos de infraestructuras a gran escala en materia de transporte, medio ambiente y otros sectores, tales como el cultural, el de la enseñanza o el de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación. También se refieren a inversiones productivas importantes y a proyectos de investigación y desarrollo.

Los grandes proyectos reciben financiación del Fondo de Desarrollo Regional Europeo y del Fondo de Cohesión. Tienen un coste superior a 50 millones de euros y están por lo tanto sujetos a una evaluación y a una decisión específica por parte de la Comisión Europea.

Major projects in detail EN

‘Major Projects’ are usually large-scale infrastructure projects in transport, environment and other sectors such as research, energy or ICT. They also involve large productive investments that in the next period will be possible only under thematic objective 1. Financial instruments are not considered major projects.

Major Projects benefit from financial support from the European Regional Development Fund and/or the Cohesion Fund. Their eligible cost must be more than € 75 million for projects under thematic objective 7 ("Promoting sustainable transport and removing bottlenecks in key network infrastructure") and more than € 50 million in other thematic objectives and therefore are subject to the quality appraisal by the European Commission.

What is the application process?

Member States apply to the European Commission for financial support for a proposed project included in an operational programme. Their application must include information about:

  1. details concerning the body to be responsible for implementation of the major project, and its capacity;
  2. a description of the investment and its location;
  3. the total cost and total eligible cost;
  4. feasibility studies carried out, including the options analysis, and the results;
  5. a cost-benefit analysis (CBA Guide), including an economic and a financial analysis, and a risk assessment;
  6. an analysis of the environmental impact, taking into account climate change adaptation and mitigation needs, and disaster resilience;
  7. an explanation as to how the major project is consistent with the relevant priority axes of the operational programme concerned, and its expected contribution to achieving the specific objectives of those priority axes and the expected contribution to socio- economic development;
  8. the financing plan showing the total planned financial resources and the planned support from the Funds, the EIB, and all other sources of financing, together with physical and financial indicators for monitoring progress, taking account of the identified risks;
  9. the timetable for implementing the major project

Member States can choose between two procedures for submitting a Major Project to the Commission:

  1. via independent experts: when the project is positively reviewed by an independent quality review, the Member States can notify the project to the Commission. The Commission carries out a quality check within three months, based on the quality review report;
  2. directly to the Commission: it shall appraise the project on the basis of the application form in order to determine whether the requested financial contribution is justified. The Commission can interrupt the process of appraisal and request additional information from the MA.

Technical assistance for the preparation of major projects is available for new Member States via JASPERS.
