PROFIT will look at options to bridge the gap between the financial profitability of TEN projects and their socio-economic rentability by facilitating and promoting public-private-partnerships (PPP) to finance and operate TEN projects. The project will
- develop a structured methodology for assessing the PPP potential of a TEN project, based on financial attractiveness and socio-economic costs and benefits.
- define and assess the network effects in TENs
- establish an Expert Group consisting of private companies and government bodies in PPPs, which will function as a consultative body for the project
- provide a user friendly and easy-to-use tool (handbook) to make a quick-scan of the PPP potential of a TEN or other infrastructure project.
