TENtec Information System

Welcome to TENtec public portal

TENtec is the European Commission's information system to coordinate and support the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) policy. TENtec has two main functions:

  1. The collation of technical, geographical and financial data to be used to inform policy-making and political decision-making processes related to TEN-T and its associated funding programme, the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The core TENtec modules deployed for these purposes are OMC (Open Method of Coordination) and iReport, both of which are accessible through the TENtec Private Portal;
  2. Provision of technical support to the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) and its grant management functions. This incorporates supporting the necessary workflows for issuing grant agreements after completion of the selection cycle for new projects, including proposal submission and reception, and the required web interfaces. The core TENtec modules deployed to meet these requirements are eSubmission services, Action Status Report, Project Follow-Up, Evaluation and Grant Agreement.

 

In addition to its primary dual function, TENtec also enables the European Commission to easily compile information and create timely reports and maps. This benefits all parties involved in TEN-T project implementation processes, providing greater transparency, data quality and a systematic up-to-date overview of the budget execution and technical implementation for each TEN-T/CEF project.

Another important function of TENtec is its capacity to act as a bridge to the ministries of Member States and other key stakeholders (DG REGIO, DG ENV, EIB and neighbouring countries), including support for transport modelling of future policy and budgetary scenarios, briefings, the mapping of TEN-T/CEF co-funded projects and other layers such as alternative fuels and secure and safe parking.

TENtec also played an integral role in the Core Network Corridor studies, providing vital data collection services and compliance maps built upon selected technical indicators, based on the TEN-T Regulation.

 

Public Portal

The TENtec Public Portal  provides timely information to the public (citizens and professionals) through interactive maps, a map library, and various audiovisual elements. This Public Portal provides a more systematic and comprehensive overview of the European Commission's work in relation to TEN-T and helps raise awareness of the benefits of TEN-T policy among EU citizens.

 

Private Portal Modules

OMC (Open Method of Coordination-platform): Collects and continuously updates technical and financial data for the entire TEN-T on a section basis. This function is accompanied by interactive multi-functional maps, including thematic layers, base maps, search engine, and print outs. OMC also inputs and validates data in close collaboration with Member States, allowing a shared work space through a predefined validation workflow.

iReport: Management of financial data collection on the previous TEN-T Priority Projects to generate the annual "Progress Report on the implementation of the Priority Projects". This function is accompanied by data input and validation functions in close collaboration with Member States, allowing a shared work space through a predefined validation workflow and the use of existing reference data.
