The event will gather all stakeholders playing a key role in delivering the efficient transport network that Europe needs: EU Ministers, Members of the European Parliament, the European Commission, the TEN-T Coordinators, the European Investment Bank, Ministers from Europe’s neighbouring countries and the whole TEN-T stakeholders community including project promoters and private investors.
Participants will have the opportunity to collectively address the major challenges of boosting investments in transport when the structure and priorities of the EU budget are about to be re-examined and to discuss the development of the trans-European transport network, with a special focus on the Core Network Corridors, ERTMS and Motorways of the Sea, with a particular view to their implementation and financing.
Other no less important deliverables are expected at the TEN-T Days 2016: it will host a dedicated Investors Conference, taking stock of transport’s contribution to the Investment Plan for Europe and the opportunities to mobilise even more investments, including through blending of grants and financial instruments, as well as a Ministerial Meeting on Connecting TEN-T with neighbouring countries, and a Business Conference on Rail Freight Corridors to boost international rail freight, organised by the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union, all of which will take place on 21st June 2016.
The TEN-T Days Exhibition will feature an indoor showcase of over 100 different TEN-T, CEF, H2020 and Shift-to-Rail projects and initiatives, all contributing to European transport research and infrastructure. An outdoor display featuring innovative hardware will also provide you with the opportunity to test and drive electric and hydrogen vehicles.
