En ce qui concerne la période de financement actuelle, le Fonds soutient la campagne "HELP, pour une vie sans tabac!" (voir <a href="http://www.help-eu.co">www.help-eu.co).

    The European Commission has today published the second call for proposals for the creation and upgrade of freight transport services under the Marco Polo II programme.
