Abstract

The recent White Paper emphasises once more that the Trans-European transport network (TEN) is a key element in European Union (EU) policy, yet that its realisation is jeopardised by the lack of an integrated approach during evaluation and funding of cross-border infrastructure. Despite the intervention of the EU in conceptualising the TEN, subsidiarity and continued use of conventional evaluation procedures mean that most assessment of individual TEN components is still undertaken in relatively narrow, national terms. The primary objective of this paper is to explore how the international character of the TEN may be recognised and incorporated in still predominantly national evaluation processes, and which evaluation horizons may be broadened based on the concepts of network effects and European value added (EVA). We present some examples of EVA and discuss EU involvement in projects with potentially high EVA, either by co-ordinating bilateral negotiations for compensation between Member States or by co-financing projects that support the achievement of strategic EU transport policy objectives.
