Please find HERE the recording of the meeting
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 for to implement TEN-T priorities.
The proposal of the European Commission features a series of innovation, including a new approach to maritime transport moving from the Motorways of the Seas 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) had called for a shift for 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.

What is an Intergroup?
The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.
The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.
Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.
Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
