The text of the 2016 MIE appeal, published on 13 October, is available at the following address: ec.europa.eu/inea/sites/inea/files/2016-cef-transport_map_general_call_text.pdf ec.europa.eu/inea/sites/inea/files/2016_cef_tran_map_general_sesar.pdf Sdm has also set an alternative deadline for the first round of DLS implementation projects scheduled for 17 November, see the website of DG MOVE: ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/air/sesar/deployment_en.htm. The operational program is part of the Partnership Framework Agreement and contains a comprehensive and structured work plan for all activities. The MDS acts as an intermediary under an EU regulation. States and their stakeholders are already bound or „constrained“ by the regulation. The SDM is intended to help stakeholders implement what they are already entitled to implement (EU Implementation Regulation 716/2014 of the Commission).
