Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

Advisory Group for CEF Transport

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.

INEA puts special emphasis on a close relationship with its beneficiaries. One way of dialogue is the Advisory Group, which constitutes a platform to discuss ways to improve the efficient implementation of CEF transport for the beneficiaries, Member States and the Agency/Commission alike. It supports the Agency in achieving its mandate and aims to maximise the expertise of both the Agency and Group members through the sharing of knowledge, experience and good practices. The objective is to find viable and economical solutions to common problems and develop shared positions where appropriate through the provision of support, advice, feedback and recommendations related to simplification of procedures, ease of access and increased transparency.

The consolidated conclusions and recommendations of the Advisory Group will be provided to the management of the Agency for their consideration.
