CONNECTING EUROPE FACILITY

Summary

The Connecting Europe Facility ("CEF"), will support projects in the sectors of transport, telecommunications and energy infrastructures and exploit potential synergies between those sectors. The total budget of the Programme (€30.400.000.000) is allocated in the three sectors as follows:

  1. Transport: €24.05 billion
  2. Energy: €5.35 billion
  3. Telecommunications: €1.04 billion 


Programme Description

The CEF shall enable projects of common interest to be prepared and implemented within the framework of the trans-European networks policy in the sectors of transport, telecommunications and energy. In particular, the CEF shall support the implementation of those projects of common interest which aim at the development and construction of new infrastructures and services, or at the upgrading of existing infrastructures and services, in the transport, telecommunications and energy sectors. It shall give priority to missing links in the transport sector. The CEF shall also contribute to supporting projects with a European added value and significant societal benefits which do not receive adequate financing from the market.

The overall objective of the Connecting Europe Facility is to pursue economic growth and support the completion and functioning of the internal market in support of the competitiveness of the European economy. CEF focuses on providing operational services which are ready to be deployed and which will be sustainable and maintained over time.
