Commission publishes Strategy for low-emission mobility

The Commission presented on 20 July 2016 a package of measures to accelerate the transition to low-carbon emissions in all sectors of the economy in Europe. As concerns transport, the Commission's "Strategy for low-emission mobility" sets clear guiding principles to prepare for the future. It frames the initiatives that the Commission is planning in the coming years, and it maps the areas in which it is exploring options. It also shows how initiatives in related fields are linked and how synergies can be achieved.

European Commission gets go-ahead for €6.7 billion investment in transport projects

The EU Member States today formally approved the list of 195 transport projects that will receive €6.7 billion of EU funding under the 2015's calls for proposals of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).

EU one step closer to unleash full potential of seaports

The European Commission welcomes the landmark agreement reached by the European Parliament and the Council of the EU on a common European framework for seaports. The objective of the Ports Regulation is to strengthen the European port sector by attracting new investments and enhancing the efficiency of port operations for the benefit of Europe's trade, economy and global positioning. Seaports are Europe's gateway and their competitiveness is critical for the internal market. 75% of extra-EU goods and 37% of the intra-EU freight traffic are shipped through European ports. The Ports Regulation therefore will deliver on the key priorities of President Jean-Claude Juncker.

Commission encourages women to work in the transport sector

Currently only 22% of transport workers are women. At a recent event in Brussels, Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc met a few of them, as well as employers, academics and policy makers, to discuss what can be done to attract more women to the sector, at a time when technological progress opens up new opportunities.
