SEArica event on the Maritime Dimension of the TEN-T – 08 September 2022, online
SEArica Vice-Chair for Maritime Transport and the North Sea, MEP Jan-Christoph Oetjen, warmly invites you to the SEArica event on the Maritime Dimension of the TEN-T, taking place online on Thursday 8 September 2022 from 10:00 to 11:30 (Brussels time).
On 14 December 2021, the European Commission published its proposal to review the Regulation for a Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). The TEN-T is of capital importance as it establishes both the funding priorities and the transport infrastructure standards within the European Union for the years to come. The current review will therefore determine the availability of European funds to implement TEN-T priorities.
The proposal of the European Commission features a series of innovations, including a new approach to maritime transport moving from the Motorways of the Sea to a more holistic vision of the European Maritime Space. The European Parliament in recent Initiative Reports dedicated to the TEN-T (report by MEP Gieseke) and to maritime transport (report by MEP Delli) has called for a shift to an inclusive approach that would better encourage modal shift and short sea shipping.
With this event, SEArica aims to discuss the maritime dimension of the TEN-T and assess whether it answers the calls from the European Parliament and the maritime sector.
Please find attached the draft Agenda.
Hosted by MEP Jan-Christoph Oetjen, SEArica Vice-Chair for Maritime Transport and the North Sea, with the participation of the SEArica Chair MEP Tonino Picula, MEP Isabel García Muñoz, TRAN Shadow Rapporteur for the TEN-T, and a keynote speech by Mr Kurt Bodewig, Coordinator of Motorways of the Sea, DG MOVE.
The event is organised in the framework of the Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas (SEArica) Intergroup of the European Parliament, together with the support of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions.
