Great success for 2011 TEN-T Project Management Workshop

Creation date: February 17, 2011

The 2011 TEN-T Project Management Workshop, which was held in the Charlemagne building in Brussels 15-16 February 2011, proved to be a considerable success, attracting around 300 participants over its two days. This annual Agency-organised event serves as the main forum for TEN-T project beneficiaries to discuss with Agency representatives about issues of common interest.

 

The bulk of the event took place on Tuesday 15 February, when a series of key presentations were given by Agency and Directorate General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) representatives on topics such as the Mid-Term Review, the 2010 Calls for Proposals and future call strategies and work programmes. Furthermore, a special Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) session was held during the afternoon to outline the importance of ITS in making transport safer, greener and more efficient and effective.

 

Wednesday, 16 February saw an interactive session in which beneficiaries who have been participating in the Agency's Good Practices in Financial and Project Management Working Group presented some of their best practices identified during the meetings. The session saw the active participation of the audience, who was encouraged to bring its contribution to the debate.

 

The event was then concluded by TEN-T EA Executive Director Dirk Beckers, who thanked all participants and outlined the importance of the Workshop in helping both Agency and beneficiaries understand each other's needs and constraints and in allowing a smoother flow of information in both directions and in simplifying the TEN-T programme management procedures as much as possible.
