Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) – New Technologies and Innovation
New technologies and innovative solutions should be deployed on the core network with particular emphasis along the core network corridors.
In order for the core network to keep up with innovative technological developments and deployments, the aim shall be in particular to:
(a) support and promote the decarbonisation of transport through transition to innovative and sustainable transport technologies;
(b) make possible the decarbonisation of all transport modes by stimulating energy efficiency, introduce alternative propulsion systems, including electricity supply systems, and provide corresponding infrastructure. Such infrastructure may include equipment and tools necessary for intelligent and sustainable integration with electricity grids and other facilities necessary for the energy supply, may take account of the infrastructure-vehicle interface, may include intelligent platforms needed for interoperability and may encompass telematic applications;
(c) improve the safety and sustainability of the movement of persons and of the transport of goods;
(d) improve the operation, management, accessibility, interoperability, multimodality and efficiency of the network, including through multimodal ticketing and coordination of travel timetables;
Studies and works are eligible. Priority is given to studies with integrated deployment.
