The Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA), established by the European Commission, is responsible for managing the technical and financial implementation of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) programme, one of the most important means of infrastructure funding.
The Trans-European Transport Network 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 Union. The TEN-T is essential to facilitate the mobility of persons, goods and services and thus to the establishment of the internal market and the economic and social cohesion of the Union.
With these ambitions in mind, the Brussels-based TEN-T Executive Agency was created by the European Commission in 2006. The Agency is in charge of all open TEN-T projects under the 2000-2006 and 2007-2013 funding schemes. 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.
