2018 CEF Transport call for proposals

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 2018 CEF Transport call for proposals is now closed. The call covers funding objectives and priorities supporting the policy orientations of the 3rd Clean Mobility Package. The focus of financial assistance will thus be on transport digitalisation, road safety and multimodality.

This call is part of a set of coordinated calls covering the CEF Transport, CEF Telecom and CEF Energy sectors. The coordinated calls aim to exploit synergies between these three sectors related to the aspect of digitalisation with a view to foster the development and implementation of coherent digital infrastructure and solutions across the various networks.
