Within the framework of the TEN-T project "Elaboration of the East Mediterranean Motorways of the sea Master Plan", the Steering Committee has launched the 2nd Call for Proposals for the Eastern Mediterranean Motorways of the Sea (Priority Project 21).
Project proposals must be submitted by consortia consisting of at least two ports/port terminals from two different Member States (one of which should be one of the five participant countries, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Cyprus and Malta) and maritime transport operators located in any EU Member State.
The main objectives of this call are:
a) identify MoS projects that will and become part of the MoS Master Plan of the East Mediterranean and contribute to the development of the Trans-European Transport Network
b) positively evaluated MoS proposals, can be further submitted to the TEN-T and Marco Polo Call for Proposals for co-financing
c) record the needs of the market (bottom-up approach) and thus develop the Master Plan of the MoS according to these needs
The deadline to submit applications is fixed at 15 November 2009. To know more about how to submit a proposal, consult the call text .pdf (55 KB) or visit the East Mediterranean Motorways of the Sea website.
The information on the joint Member State call for proposals for Motorways of the Sea projects published on this website remains entirely under the responsibility of the Member States issuing the call and does in no way engage the Commission. In particular, the selection of a Motorways of the Sea project by the Member States in the framework of their joint call for proposals does in no way bind the Commission to select the project in the framework of an EC call issued under the TEN-T or Marco Polo programmes, even if this selection would lead to the provision of state aid. Conversely, selection of a Motorways of the Sea project proposal by the Member States in the framework of a joint call is a condition, for Motorways of the Sea project proposals, to receiving co-financing from the TEN-T programme.
