2015 CEF Transport Cohesion Call

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.

The 2015 CEF Transport Cohesion Call (budget €6.47 billion) is now closed.


This Call is exclusively for projects in Member States eligible for Cohesion Funds. INEA, in collaboration with the European Commission, organised Info Day on 30 November 2015 to present the political priorities and content of each Call. The Info Day also provided participants with relevant details on the application and evaluation process.


For any specific questions concerning the call, please check the call FAQ.


The results of the 2015 CEF Transport calls have been announced on 8 July 2016.
