The dataset is as published by INEA and covers the 280 TEN-T project applications to the CEF which have included a partner from one or more of Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, and The United Kingdom (Norway was not involved in any application).

TEN-TaNS Website to be kept "Live"

Although the project operation was supposed to close in June 2015 the TEN-TaNS team have decided to keep the project live at their own expense - with the amount of positive feedback we have had this website is clearly an in-demand resource so we will actively maintain it for the rest of 2015 at least...... more exciting resouces will be loaded soon so check back on the "news" page
