INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.

This Call is now closed.


The 2014 CEF Transport Multi-annual Call's Funding Objective 1 has a budget of €6 billion.


Funding Objective 1 aims at bridging missing links, removing bottlenecks, enhancing rail interoperability, and, in particular, improving cross-border sections. It addresses the following priorities:


• Pre-identified projects on the corridors of the Core Network (railways, inland waterways, roads, maritime and inland ports)
• Pre-identified projects on other sections of the Core Network (railways, inland waterways, roads, maritime and inland ports)
• Rail interoperability
• European Rail Traffic Management Systems (ERTMS)
