About EU funding

The TEN-T policy supports the completion of projects representing high European added value as well as projects of common interests and traffic management systems that will play a key role in facilitating the mobility of goods and passengers within the EU. Several different EU funding programmes and initiatives make available financial support to projects implementing the TEN-T.

The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is the EU funding instrument for strategic investment in transport, energy and digital infrastructure. In the transport sector, CEF is dedicated to the implementation of the TEN-T and aims at supporting investments in cross-border connections, missing links as well as promoting sustainability and digitalisation. During the period 2014-2019, CEF Transport has awarded EUR 23.3 billion in grants to co-finance projects of common interest.

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) contributes to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, and aims to reinforce economic, social and territorial cohesion in EU regions and cities. The ERDF support can be provided through grants and through financial instruments to help develop multimodal and environmentally-friendly transport and regional mobility.

The Mid Nordic Corridor

A good example is the Mid Nordic Corridor, which is an EU funded project focused on up-grading the transport corridor between the cities of Sundsvall in Sweden and Trondheim in Norway. The project brings together municipalities, counties and regions, as well as the Swedish Transport Administration, to tackle issues ranging from road safety to increasing the capacity for rail freight. The idea is that, taken together, small steps will make a big difference to people, communities and businesses along this corridor. EU funding:

Horizon 2020/Europe

Strong interregional cooperation is crucial when planning and developing cross-border transport infrastructure to replace a patchwork of transport regions with a coordinated pan-continental network. Numerous projects within the Bothnian Corridor are or have been co-funded through Interreg programmes.
