The general objectives of the TEN-T EA are in line with the Commission's objective to modernise transport infrastructure and its smart funding, and are based on the specific tasks delegated to the Agency by the Commission in the act setting up the Agency and the delegation act.
In addition to this, the Agency also has three specific objectives for 2013, namely to:
- Realise an effective and efficient technical and financial management of the TEN-T Programme and projects and an efficient internal organisation; demonstrating the added value and expertise of the Agency, and supporting the implementation of the priority projects and completion of TEN-T infrastructure
- Prepare the implementation of the next financial perspective, including the preparation of the delegation of the 2014-2020 EU programmes to the executive agencies and extension of the TEN-T EA mandate, and the future implementation of the CEF
- Support to the Commission in its priority to attract private investment to transport infrastructure by its on-going cooperation with other services concerned with the financing of transport infrastructure, and contribution to the development of innovative financial instruments
More information about these objectives can be found in the Agency's 2013 Work Programme, available in the Key Documents section.
