Urban rail investments in the next MFF

Date: Wednesday, 11 September 2019 09:30 - 12:30

Venue: European Committee of the Regions

Political keynote speeches are foreseen from:

  • European Commission (DG MOVE) (tbc)
  • UITP Secretary General Mohamed Mezghani
  • UNIFE Director General Philippe Citroën
  • CoR President Karl-Heinz Lambertz

In an introductory session, the EIB (tbc) will make the case for urban rail systems and present expert views on urban mobility.

Afterwards a panel discussion will explore "EU funding and financing for urban rail systems: best practices and prospects for 2021-2027" with representatives of DG REGIO (tbc), the EIB as well as the CoR, UITP and UNIFE.

The objective of the conference is to address the challenges and opportunities that are linked to urbanisation like emissions and congestion. Urban and regional rail projects, at EU, national and regional level could help to address these problems and bring significant economic, environmental and social benefits.

In the context of ongoing discussions regarding the next MFF, this conference will be a great occasion to discuss how the EU will continue to boost investment for urban rail projects, be it through funding from its own funds (Structural Fund/Connecting Europe Facility) or alternative financing schemes.
