The Infrastructure and Environment Programme - CUPT


In the years 2014-2020, the CEUTP (acting as an Intermediate Body) is responsible for the implementation of the OPI&E in the field of transport projects . Having gained experience from the implementation of the OPI&E in the previous programming period (2007-2013), the CEUTP fully supports the Beneficiaries in the process of preparation and implementation of investment projects in order to make the most effective use of EU funds allocated for spending under the Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020.

The Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment (OPI&E) is the programme for which the most resources are allocated in the 2014-2020 financial perspective - € 27.4 billion.

As in the previous EU financial perspective, OPI&E 2014-2020 supports the development of the country's infrastructure. The funds from this Programme contribute to the continued, sustainable development of the economy and an increase of its competitiveness.

Funds from the Programme specifically finance such areas as:
