Pursuant to Article 9 of the CEF Regulation, only those proposals submitted by one of the following types of applicants are eligible:

  • One or more Member States;
  • With the agreement of the Member States concerned, international organizations, joint undertakings, or public or private undertakings or bodies established in Member States.


Proposals may be submitted by entities which do not have legal personality under the applicable national law, provided that their representatives have the capacity to undertake legal obligations on their behalf and offer guarantee for the protection of the Union’s financial interests equivalent to that offered by legal persons.

Proposals submitted by natural persons are not eligible.

Multi-Stakeholder projects are possible and welcome by INEA under the FPA long-term cooperation mechanism which establishes the management and implementation levels of the SESAR deployment governance (relations between 3-layer governance) and set the principles for the co-ordination among them.
