In order to encourage investment in Europe, the Commission has announced that it will allocate 7,600 million euros to the activation of the second call for Mechanism “Connecting Europe” (MCE) proposals to finance projects for strategic transport.
MCE, in line with the investment plan submitted by the Commission, intends to stimulate growth and job creation.
Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, encourages project sponsors to not miss the opportunity and submit proposals by the interface that will be enabled in January.
To clarify that the aid is granted on a competitive basis as EU co-financing and that the deadline for submitting projects is 16 February 2016. The results of the calls will be published in the summer of 2016.
Is important to recall that this year summons pays special attention to innovation in transport and infrastructure projects related to sustainable transport.
Projects that include intelligent transport systems and traffic management systems (ERTMS, SESAR, RIS etc.) are requested because, in the words of Violeta Bulc, Transport Commissioner of the EU, is essential that transport be effective, intelligent and sustainable for the competitiveness of Europe.
