During the event, which took place at the Joint Representation of the Land of Tyrol, the Autonomous Province of Bolzano - South Tyrol and the Autonomous Province of Trento, we had the opportunity to discuss with Lydia Rooney, Policy Director of Unit B.2 Transport Investments of DG MOVE, European Commission, the results of the negotiations on mobility and transport resources. In particular, the CEF and InvestEU were discussed, which will bring together the multitude of EU financial instruments currently available to support investment in the EU.

Background:

EU funds for mobility and transport are direct-managed or shared-managed funding instruments that aims to contribute to the completion of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), accelerating the decarbonisation and digitisation of the transport sector and promoting research about efficient transport systems. Negotiations are currently under way on the next long-term EU budget for the period 2021-2027. So far, common understandings have been reached between the Council and the European Parliament on the CEF, InvestEU and Horizon Europe. However, the agreements leave aside all budgetary provisions and some horizontal provisions at this stage, pending further progress on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF).
