Connecting Europe Facility (CEF)

The EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is a vital funding tool for targeted European-level infrastructure investment. It enhances interconnectivity in transport, energy, and digital networks, boosting growth, jobs, and competitiveness. CEF investments bridge gaps in Europe’s energy, transport, and digital framework.

The CEF benefits all EU members by improving sustainable travel, strengthening energy security, promoting renewables, and facilitating cross-border interactions. Beyond grants, the CEF deploys innovative financial tools like guarantees and project bonds, leveraging EU budget to attract private and public sector funding.

The CEF is divided into three sectors:

  1. CEF Energy
  2. CEF Telecom
  3. CEF Transport
