What is an EU Project?

Our EU projects are projects co-funded by the European Union via programmes such as TEN-T. They are initiated by partners with a common goal who agree to work according to the ZVT method.

As for the Pilot projects, the parties involved applies for funding from the EU Commission. In order to be eligible for co-funding, the applicants’ proposed project first needs endorsement from all of the participant parties country governments and/or chosen Ministries, then be put forward for evaluation by chosen representatives of the funding program. If chosen, the project is presented to a Committee and if they also agree to the project maturity and its importance to the EU and area, it’s presented to the Commission for adoption.

The involved parties also need to agree to certain terms and conditions set by the Commission. When the application is approved an agreement is signed and a plan with milestones and dissemination activities is developed.

The programs

The 2020 initiative for Europe is called Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) and finances projects which fill the missing links in Europe's energy, transport and digital backbone. It will also make Europe's economy greener by promoting cleaner transport modes, high speed broadband connections and facilitating the use of renewable energy in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy.
The TEN-T Programme, co-funding the ongoing Pilot Projects, was established by the European Commission to support the construction and upgrade of transport infrastructure across the European Union.
