Application of telematics applications for European interoperability

The grant agreement within the scope of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for the action entitled “Application of telematics applications for European interoperability” (Action No. 2018-EU-TM-0063-S) was signed on July 4, 2019, by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), the association RailNetEurope (RNE) in the capacity of coordinator, and HŽ Infrastruktura in the capacity of beneficiary, as well as seven other European railway infrastructure managers. The total amount of estimated eligible costs for HŽ Infrastruktura is EUR 1,440,000.00, and it will be co-financed by the European Union in the amount of 50 percent of eligible costs.

By implementing the project, HŽ Infrastruktura would, as an infrastructure manager, modernize its IT system for ordering train paths and achieve better communication and exchange of documents between the infrastructure manager and railway undertakings.

HŽ Infrastruktura would, by means of project implementation, also be in accordance with the Commission Regulation (EU) No. Regulation (EU) No 1305/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2014 on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the telematics applications for rail freight subsystem in the European Union and repealing Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 62/2006. (TSI TAF) and Commission Regulation (EU) No. Regulation (EU) No 454/2011 of 5 May 2011 on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the ‘telematics applications for passenger transport’ subsystem of the trans-European rail system (TSI TAP and TAF) as directly applicable binding EU regulations.
