2017 CEF Transport Blending MAP Call

The 2017 CEF Transport Blending MAP Call for Proposals, opened on 8 February 2017, makes €1 billion of funding available for projects of common interest in the transport sector aiming at maximising the leverage of private involvement and capital in the delivery of CEF Transport projects. This call is open to all EU Member States. 

The 2017 CEF Transport Blending Call for Proposals has two cut-off dates for the submission of proposals: 14 July 2017 and 30 November 2017 (to be confirmed).


Overview of submitted proposals for the 1st cut-off date (14 July 2017)

The evaluation will take place over the coming months. In order to be able to take account of the results of the evaluation of proposals submitted under the first cut-off date, the Commission is envisaging to request INEA to postpone the second cut-off date until the first trimester of 2018.

A position on these issues will be communicated on INEA's website after the summer break.


The submission phase for the 2nd cut-off date is currently open.

For any specific questions concerning the call, please contact the calls helpdesk or check the call FAQ page.
