The European Commission estimates that some €970 billion should be invested in trans-European transport, telecommunications and energy network infrastructure by 2020 if Europe is to reach its full potential in terms of growth and cohesion. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is designed to contribute to this objective, through a mix of grants, procurement, financial instruments and project support.
