The 2020 CEF Transport MAP call for proposals has been published on 15 December 2020 with a total budget of €200 million (€160 million under the 'General envelope' and €40 million under the 'Cohesion envelope').
This call addressed actions related to the funding objective “removing bottlenecks, enhancing rail interoperability, bridging missing links and, in particular, improving cross-border sections”.
The envisaged actions need to contribute to completing pre-identified projects on the core network corridors and on the other sections of the core network (railways, inland waterways, roads, maritime and inland ports).
The general objective of this call is to prepare for the implementation of TEN-T core network projects by supporting studies, addressing the necessary preparatory steps for the forthcoming infrastructure works. These steps can relate e.g to technical design, permitting procedures and preparation of the tendering process.
