CEF Transport project exhibition

The European Climate, Environment and Infrastructure Executive Agency (CINEA) is the successor organisation of the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA). Officially established on 15 February 2021, it started its activities on 1 April 2021 to implement parts of certain EU programmes. CINEA plays a key role in supporting the EU Green Deal through the efficient and effective implementation of its delegated programmes.

The exhibition showcases a selection of railway infrastructure projects taking place along the route of the Connecting Europe Express and which have been (or still are) financed by the Connecting Europe Facility EU programme. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is a key EU funding instrument to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness through targeted infrastructure investment at European level. CEF Transport aims to support investments in building new transport infrastructure in Europe or rehabilitating and upgrading existing infrastructure.

Inside the exhibition wagon, visitors are able to scan the QR codes of these projects and access additional information on the specific rail projects in which they are interested in. The online info sheets provide a detailed description of each project, including its benefits, as well as financial data on costs and EU support.
