The transport priority provides answers to the core-periphery dichotomy in the CENTRAL EUROPE area. Thanks to the projects funded under this priority, the gap between peripheral and less accessible regions and the area’s well-connected centres will be reduced. The connections of regions and cities to the European transport networks will improve and multi-modal environmentally friendly passenger and freight transport will be strengthened.
Our third call for proposals will be launched on 21 September and stay open until 25 January 2018. Around 60 million EUR will become available for new transnational cooperation ideas. Around ten million EUR ERDF from this budget will be allocated to the project ideas that help to improve capacities for urban and regional development in transport priority.
In transport both specific objectives will remain fully open, encouraging transnational project ideas to improve:
Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will offer around 60 million EUR ERDF for new transnational cooperation ideas as of 21 September 2017. The programme is also looking for project ideas in the transport priority that will help to improve regional passenger transport or multimodal freight transport.
The European Commission is updating the European rules on rail passenger rights to better protect train travellers in case of delays, cancellations or discrimination. Rail passengers should be fully protected no matter where they travel in the EU.
