Pro­jects bols­te­ring the EU-Ukraine Soli­da­ri­ty LanesEN•••, set up to faci­li­ta­te Ukraine’s exports and imports, will also be eli­gi­ble. For the first time, enti­ties from Ukrai­ne and Mol­do­va can app­ly direct­ly for EU fun­ding with this call, sin­ce the signa­tu­re of the CEF Asso­cia­ti­on Agree­ments with the two count­ries ear­lier this year. 

Com­mis­sio­ner for Trans­port, Adi­na Vălean, said: „This call for pro­po­sals will be the lar­gest in terms of available bud­get under the 2021–2027 Con­nec­ting Euro­pe Faci­li­ty. We are making available over €7 bil­li­on for pro­jects that will sup­port a smart and sus­tainable trans­port sys­tem, with a strong focus on cross-border pro­jects bet­ween Mem­ber Sta­tes. The­se chal­len­ging times have also rein­forced the importance of having a strong trans­port net­work of rail­ways, inland water­ways and mari­ti­me rou­tes which will increase our industry’s com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness, bring citi­zens clo­ser tog­e­ther, and anchor Ukrai­ne and Mol­do­va firm­ly into the EU.“

Infra­struc­tu­re pro­jects fun­ded under this call will impro­ve safe­ty and inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty within the EU trans­port net­work. The call also covers pro­jects impro­ving the resi­li­ence of trans­port infra­struc­tu­re against natu­ral dis­as­ters. The­se invest­ments will streng­then con­nec­ti­vi­ty to bols­ter the com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness of the inter­nal mar­ket for both pas­sen­gers and freight, for hig­her qua­li­ty of life and lower emissions. 

Appli­cants are invi­ted to sub­mit their pro­po­sals by 30 Janu­ary 2024.
