The 2023 CEF Transport calls for proposals make EUR 7 billion available for projects targeting new and improved European transport infrastructure. 

Projects funded under these calls will help to increase the sustainability of the trans-European transport network, putting the EU on track to meet the European Green Deal objective of cutting transport emissions by 90% by 2050.

The calls support the European Commission’s vision of a future sustainable transport system, with smart and resilient solutions implemented to interconnect Europe. 

The EU needs an efficient and interconnected multimodal transport system for both passengers and freight. This includes an affordable, reliable and performing rail network, an enhanced inland waterways navigation and infrastructure in maritime ports, a balanced interconnection between transport modes and an increased automation and interoperability for greater efficiency and safety of the transport network.  

The calls cover the Core and Comprehensive TEN-T networks in the following areas: 

  • railways 
  • inland waterways
  • maritime and inland ports
  • road safety
  • rail-road terminals 
  • multimodal logistics platforms
  • multimodal passenger hubs
  • smart and interoperable applications for transport 
  • safe and secure mobility
  • infrastructure resilience
