Committee of the Regions conference on TEN-T

Creation date: March 10, 2011

The Committee of the Regions (CoR) is organising a conference titled "Moving Europe's regions and cities: Perspectives of EU Transport Policy and Trans-European Networks" in Brussels on 30 March 2011 from 14.00 to 17.30.


The Forum will look at most recent developments as regards EU transport policy and TEN-T projects. In the light of the forthcoming White Paper on a sustainable future for transport and the new TEN-T guidelines to be issued over the first semester 2011, the Forum will address the following questions:


  • How does EU transport policy contribute to economic, social and territorial cohesion?
  • What role do regional and local authorities have in financing the TEN-T projects?
  • How can good governance of and involvement in TEN-T projects be organised?


Regional, local and EU experts, TEN-T coordinators as well as practitioners and politicians will debate these questions during sessions highlighting project examples and academic research. TEN-T EA's Executive Director, Dirk Beckers, will also be presenting the role of the Agency and its added value in the management of TEN-T infrastructure projects.


An exhibition of priority projects will also be presented by the TEN-T EA in the space outside the conference room.
