The Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) organised on 31 January 2012 an Info Day in Brussels to promote the recently published TEN-T Annual Call 2011. The conference, which attracted around 400 stakeholders, was pivotal in detailing the essential aspects of the Call and served as a forum for potential applicants to field their questions directly to European Commission as well as Agency representatives.
TEN-T EA Executive Director Dirk Beckers, noted: “We are very pleased with the very high level of participation at the Agency’s latest event, as well as the preparedness of individual participants. I am confident that this will result in numerous high-quality project proposals with ambitious objectives that will further aid in the completion of the TEN-T network.” The TEN-T Annual Call 2011 has a budget of €200 million, under five specific priorities.
The Info Day was structured as to offer stakeholders with the maximum possible information regarding the open Call. It included presentations on policy priorities from DG Mobility and Transport as well as the application process and “Hints & tips” on how to submit a successful project proposal. A practical demonstration of the online eSubmission tool was also organised to familiarise potential applicants with the software.
Stakeholders who missed the event will be able to download the recording of the day from the Agency’s website where they will also find all the presentations of the day.
