ESPO's position on the Mid-term Evaluation of CEF

14 February 2017

In November 2016, the Commission invited stakeholders to contribute their views to the current Mid-term evaluation of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Programme. The European Sea Ports Organisation welcomes the opportunity to participate in the Mid-term Evaluation and would like to share some ideas that could help improve CEF.

ESPO would like to share the following ideas that could help improve CEF:

  1. More CEF Budget for Transport
  2. No Juncker Plan without CEF grants
  3. Better definition and implementation of the “EU added value”
  4. Improving the CEF budget’s long-term vision
  5. Improving the selection process
