EUROPE: The European Commission announced the projects selected to receive €170m of trans-European transport network infrastructure co-funding grants on February 21.

Following last year's call for funding, a total of €190·6m has been allocated towards projects with a total value of €899·3m. Applications were submitted for 26 rail projects, with 14 being accepted and receiving 17·9% of the total funding. Other projects also include rail elements.
