Connecting Europe Facility on track to deliver results

Infrastructure – TEN-T – Connecting Europe

13/02/2018 Today, the Commission adopted the report on the mid-term evaluation of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The evaluation assessed the programme’s overall performance in light of its objectives, and what has been achieved to date. Regarding transport financing, the report recognises that CEF has brought a clear added value, in particular for the completion of the TEN-T core network by 2030 and for the low-emission mobility ambition.

The conclusions of the evaluation, as well as the on-going consultation on strategic infrastructure funding, will provide recommendations for the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework and the next generation of financial programmes.

CEF is a key EU funding instrument promoting growth, jobs and competitiveness through targeted infrastructure investment at EU level. It supports the development of high performing, sustainable and efficiently interconnected trans-European networks in the fields of transport, energy and digital services. In the field of transport, CEF currently supports over 641 projects with EU funding of €22.3 bn.

Moreover, the Conference aims at pushing forward a fully synchronized manufacturing system between China and Europe with “just in time” deliveries to final destinations and minimal intercontinental transit stocks.

DIALOG Schienengüterverkehr: Konferenz am 29.08.2017 in Hannover

Am Dienstag den 29. August 2017 geht es um: DIALOG Schienengüterverkehr

Coaching des Schienengüterverkehrs und regionale Entwicklungsansätze


Schienengüterverkehr kann eine größere Bedeutung gewinnen. Allen handelnden Parteien müssen jedoch dessen Möglichkeiten, die Randbedingungen und  die organisatorisch-betrieblichen Verfahren bekannt sein, die notwendigen Netzwerke sind zu knüpfen. Am Beispiel der Region Hannover wurde erarbeitet, wie die notwendigen Voraussetzungen und diesbezügliche regionale Förderungsansätze geschaffen werden können. Das Coaching des Schienengüterverkehrs umfasst dabei ein Bündel aufeinander abgestufter Maßnahmen, deren Methodik auf andere Regionen übertragbar ist.

Die Deutsche Verkehrswissenschaftliche Gesellschaft (DVWG) Niedersachsen/Bremen e.V. in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Niedersächsischen Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Verkehr, der IHK Hannover und der Region Hannover hat aus diesem Anlass eine Konferenz vorbereitet, zu der wir Sie gerne einladen.
