Event: EU resources for mobility and transport under the next MFF


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.


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.

Flash news: European networks and S3 partnerships come together to support Interregional Innovation Investments for European value chains

Source: Vanguard Initiative

On Monday, June 3rd 2019, European Regions, Interregional Smart Specialisation partnerships and other innovation stakeholders jointly called upon the European Parliament and the Council of the EU to preserve the proposed ‘Interregional Innovation Investments’ component in its key elements.

All EU institutions acknowledge the EU added value of this new component and in particular how it can harness existing potential across less and more developed EU regions to develop EU innovation value chains and to strengthen EU competitiveness. Therefore, upcoming budget negotiations should not put this innovation component at risk.

On May 29, 2018, the European Commission proposed, as part of the European Territorial Cooperation INTERREG regulation, a new INTERREG component 5 on Interregional Innovation Investments. This new component 5, financed at €970 MLN for the period 2021-2027, aims to develop European value chains across Europe through two strands:

  1. support for investments in interregional innovation projects;
  2. support for the development of value chains in less developed regions.

In a new joint statement, European networks and S3 partnerships come together to support the interregional innovation investments. The signatories of the statement include the Vanguard Initiative, EARTO, ERRIN, AER, CPMR, EuroTech Universities, European Network of Living Labs and several interregional S3 partnerships.

Together, the signatories call upon the European Parliament and the Council of the EU to preserve the following key elements of the component, irrespectively of its final regulatory location:

  • Interregional nature, as the main European added value of component 5 is to co-finance Smart Specialisation driven common projects of different EU regions;
  • budget: €970 million for 7 years is a minimum starting point, considering the ambition of the component and the fact that it will be split in two strands;
  • central management: the management of the new instrument should allow swift allocation of resources, addressing effectively fast developing technologies and value chains, while putting regional actors at the core of its governance. It should moreover enable coordination in practice, resolve issues with state aid, capitalise on regulatory attempts to bring synergies in the next Multiannual Financial Framework and provide room for bottom-up processes;
  • openness to third countries: based on mutual benefit, cooperation should be open to third country partners that share the European Union’s values.
