1 Funding the Trans-European Transport Network with the Connecting Europe Facility - Opportunities for Czech Republic -

2 The EU TEN-T framework Strategic framework Policy framework
White Paper for Transport Policy framework TEN-T Guidelines (Regulation 1315/2013) Funding framework Connecting Europe Facility (Regulation 1316/2013) Cohesion Fund/ ERDF Financial partners, such as EIB

3 White Paper for Transport
By 2030: A fully functional multimodal TEN-T ‘core network’ Connect all core seaports to the rail freight network 30% of road freight over 300km shift to rail or waterborne transport By 2050: 60% reduction of CO2 for transport sector A European high-speed rail network Most of medium-distance passenger transport by rail Connect all core network airports to rail network

4 New TEN-T policy By 2030: a single European TEN-T core network
By 2050: a TEN-T comprehensive network, as “ground layer”, to ensure accessibility TEN-T maps

5 TEN-T Network Comprehensive and Core Network
Inland waterways and ports

6 TEN-T Network Comprehensive Network Core Network Railways, ports,
rail-road terminals Core Network Railways (freight), ports,

7 TEN-T Network Comprehensive network Core Network Railways and airports
(passengers) and airports

8 TEN-T Network Core and Comprehensive networks Roads, ports,
rail-road teminals and airports

9 Core Network Corridors - implementation tools -
European Coordinators and Core Network Corridors Support the implementation of the core network Synchronise investments in order to optimise network benefits Multimodal, involving at least 3 Member States Consultative Corridor Fora, with involvement of all stakeholders Coordinators for ERTMS and Motorways of the Sea

10 TEN-T Core Network Corridors

11 Connecting Europe Facility - Transport
Budget: €26.2 billion for TEN-T 14.9bn EUR for all MS 11.3bn EUR for Cohesion MS €1.1 billion for Czech Republic Funding priorities: Core Network Corridors: cross-border, bottlenecks Pre-identified projects in the CEF Annex Other cross-border sections and bottlenecks Horizontal priorities: ITS, RIS, ERTMS, interoperability, innovation&new technologies, safe and secure infrastructure Core, but also the comprehensive TEN-T More sustainable modes of transport (railways, IWW) Innovative financial instruments 11

12 CEF in Czech Republic: Baltic-Adriatic Core Network Corridor
Bielsko Biala – Žilina Road Works Katowice - Ostrava - Brno - Wien & Katowice - Žilina - Bratislava - Wien Rail Works, in particular cross-border sections PL-CZ, CZ-AT, PL-SK and SK- AT, Brno-Přerov line; (further) development of multimodal platforms and airport-rail interconnections

13 CEF in Czech Republic: Orient East-Med Core Network Corridor
Dresden - Praha Rail studies for high-speed rail Praha upgrading, freight bypass; rail connection airport Praha – Breclav upgrading Hamburg – Dresden – Praha – Pardubice IWW Elbe and Vltava studies, works for better navigability and upgrading Děčín locks Studies Prague - Brno - Breclav Upgrading, including rail node Brno and multi-modal platform Breclav – Bratislava Cross-border, upgrading

14 CEF in Czech Republic: Rhine-Danube Core Network Corridor
Ostrava/Prerov – Žilina – Košice – UA border Rail upgrading, multimodal platforms Zlín – Žilina Road cross-border road section München – Praha studies and works Nürnberg – Praha

15 CEF in Czech Republic: Other pre-identified sections on the TEN-T Core Network
Wrocław – Praha Cross-Border Rail Nowa Sól – Hradec Králové Road Brno – AT border Priority Projects as defined in Annex III of Decision 661/2010 (Prague - Linz, New High-capacity rail: Central Trans-Pyrenees crossing, "Iron Rhine" (Rheidt-Antwerpen))

16 Complementarity CEF – ESI Funds
High EU added-value on TEN-T Corridors and core network (as pre-identified in Annex I of the CEF Regulation) More sustainable modes of transport: rail, IWW High EU added-value projects to remove bottlenecks in transport networks, by supporting TEN-T infrastructure on both the core and comprehensive networks All modes of transport Regional mobility, through connecting secondary and tertiary nodes to TEN-T infrastructure Network effect: strong coordination of investments in TEN-T needed Common project pipeline for ESI Funds and CEF, to be included in the Operational Programmes Corridors Work Plans National Transport Master Plans

17 Complementarity CEF - ESI Funds (2)
Final selection process – as appropriate, take account of: Programming for the ESI Funds, in order to ensure complementarity between the two sources of funding How the proposed project fits in the national Transport Master Plan of the Member State(s) concerned, as appropriate Cohesion Policy CBA methodology for major projects - strongly recommended in order to simplify the process of project preparation under CEF and ESI Funds Co-funding rates in line with the rates of Cohesion Fund support for TEN-T projects in the respective Member State

18 Call 2014 for Cohesion Member States
