PURPOSE AND GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Shifting the balance between transport modes to achieve a more sustainable development strategy has been at the heart of the European policy and notably since the Gothenburg European Council in 2001.
In its review of the White Paper on the European Transport Policy, the European Commission suggests a shift from the road to more environmental friendly modes where appropriate, especially on long distance, in urban areas and on congested corridors.

Five distinct types of action will be supported:


(1) Modal shift actions,
(2) Catalyst actions
(3) Motorways of the sea actions
(4) Traffic avoidance actions
(5) Common learning actions

The Commission, together with the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation – hereafter EACI – which is in charge of the management of the Programme, hereby invites interested parties to submit proposals for Modal shift, Catalyst, Motorways of the sea, Traffic avoidance and Common learning actions.

For the purpose of this call the definitions as mentioned in the Marco Polo II Regulation and its revision (mentioned in footnote 3 and 4) are repeated in Appendix 1. Please take them carefully into account.

FUNDING CONDITIONS

The Programme grant shall be conditioned as follows:


- For Modal shift actions the grant will be limited to 35% of the total eligible costs necessary, and actually incurred, as described in Appendix 4. Ancillary infrastructure costs are eligible up to 20% of the total eligible costs. The grant will not amount to more than €2 (two Euro) for each shift6 actually realised of 500 tonne-kilometres or 2000 cubic metre-kilometres (in case the volumetric equivalent is used) from road to any other land or water modes.

- For Catalyst actions, the grant will be limited to 35% of the total eligible costs necessary, and actually incurred, as described in Appendix 4. Ancillary infrastructure costs are eligible up to 20% of the total eligible costs. The grant will not amount to more than €2 (two Euro) for each shift actually realised of 500 tonne kilometres or 2000 cubic metre-kilometres (in case the volumetric equivalent is used) from road to any other land or water modes.

- For Motorways of the sea actions, the grant will be limited to 35% of the total eligible costs necessary, and actually incurred, as described in Appendix 4. Ancillary infrastructure costs are eligible up to 20% of the total eligible costs. The grant will not amount to more than €2 (two Euro) for each shift actually realised of 500 tonne-kilometres or 2000 cubic metre-kilometres (in case the volumetric equivalent is used) from road to any other land or water modes.

- For Traffic avoidance actions, the grant will be limited to 35% of the total eligible costs necessary, and actually incurred, as described in Appendix 4. Ancillary infrastructure costs are eligible up to 20% of the total eligible costs.
The grant will not amount to more than €2 (two Euro) for each avoidance actually realised of 500 tonne-kilometres or 2000 cubic metre-kilometres (in case the volumetric equivalent is used) or 25 vehicle kilometres10 of road freight.

- For Common learning actions it will be limited to 50% of the total eligible costs necessary and actually incurred as described in Appendix 4.

The action shall start between 1st July 2009 and 1st July 2011; however only costs incurred after the submission date of an application shall be eligible for Union financial assistance.

The grant shall under no circumstances have the purpose or the effect of producing a profit for the beneficiary. The action may not produce an overall profit during the entire duration of the grant. This does not rule out periodic profit over the course of the action, provided the overall balance remains negative.

All requests for Union financial assistance shall be made in EURO.

Eligible costs for a Marco Polo II grant may not be funded or have been funded by another EU-scheme. However, the grant may be given in addition to other legitimate public funding and as long as the combined public grant.

ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION CRITERIA

General eligibility criteria


- Uniqueness: the type of action for which a project is proposed must be clearly specified by the applicant.
- Transport Services: the proposal must dominantly concern transport services or logistics concepts in the market place, i.e. infrastructure, research or study projects are not eligible.

In case of actions submitted by consortia, one undertaking should be identified as the lead partner. An undertaking from a close third country may also be involved as an associated partner (not as a lead partner) to a project. Actions shall involve the territory of at least two Member States or the territory of at least one Member State and the territory of a close third country.

- European Dimension - Cost: the budget will not finance costs arising outside the territories of the Union or fully participating countries. Legal or natural persons established outside these countries cannot be the recipients of Union funds under this call in a capacity of project partner. Their costs shall not be eligible. Furthermore, subcontracting to legal or natural persons established outside these countries shall be duly justified in view of the technical and economic necessity and may not be used to circumvent the eligibility rules applicable to project partners.

- Type of Legal Entity: all project participants must be legal persons. They must be privately or publicly owned commercial undertakings. Public law entities engaged in economic activities in accordance with their national laws are entitled to participate. Natural persons are not eligible. Project partners must prove the status of being a commercial undertaking, for instance by providing a VAT number or being listed in the commercial register.
