Creation date: November 11, 2009
The North Sea Motorways of the Sea Task Force has just launched an open call for tenders to submit Motorways of the Sea project proposals, as defined under Priority Project 21 of the TEN-T Guidelines.
Funding under this call is available for:
a) Infrastructure: port infrastructures, infrastructures for direct land and sea access (see Art.12a (2) of the TEN-T Guidelines) as well as inland waterway and canal infrastructures within the meaning of Art. 12a (3) of the TEN-T Guidelines.
b) Facilities: electronic logistics management systems, facilities to ensure and enhance safety and security, facilities to simplify administrative and customs procedures , facilities for icebreaking and dredging operations (see Article 12 a (2) of the TEN-T Guidelines.
c) Studies related to the feasibility, scope or implementation of the project.
The call focuses on the period 2009-2013 and proposals can normally be submitted to Member states at any time during the year (please check official call document for further details - .pdf (152.5 KB)).
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.
