EU Environment and Climate action LIFE Programme Launches €450m call for project proposals

The European Commission has launched its 2020 call for project proposals under the LIFE programme.

The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action and this year, the European Commission have earmarked more than €450 million for nature conservation, environmental protection and climate action projects.

LIFE funds projects under its environment and climate action sub-programmes, thereby helping implement the European Green Deal.

Most LIFE projects are so-called traditional projects that can be coordinated by any legal entity registered in the EU. These include public institutions, businesses and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). A lot of traditional projects show best-practices, run pilots, raise public awareness or demonstrate breakthroughs in environmental practices.

Applications are also being accepted for bigger so-called integrated projects. These projects run strategic EU plans on the environment and the climate and tend to have a regional, multi-regional, national or trans-national dimension.

You can find more information on how to apply on the 2020 LIFE call for proposals page.
