"LIFE"

The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value.

The LIFE Programme shall in particular have the following general objectives:

  • to contribute to the shift towards a resource-efficient, lowcarbon and climate- resilient economy, to the protection and improvement of the quality of the environment and to halting and reversing biodiversity loss, including the support of the Natura 2000 network and tackling the degradation of ecosystems;
  • to improve the development, implementation and enforcement of Union environmental and climate policy and legislation, and to act as a catalyst for, and promote, the integration and mainstreaming of environmental and climate objectives into other Union policies and public and private sector practice, including by increasing the public and private sector's capacity;
  • to support better environmental and climate governance at all levels, including better involvement of civil society, NGOs and local actors;
  • to support the implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme.

Description of programme
"Climate change governance and information"
Projects under the Climate Governance and Information Priority Area should promote actions contributing to objective of shifting towards a low carbon and resilient economy.
In this context, the development of long term climate strategies and new policy measures, full implementation of climate policy and legislation as well as ensuring a higher uptake of climate friendly technologies is important. These aspects are inextricably linked to achieving, better governance, mainstreaming climate action in other policies as well as promoting knowledge, dissemination of information and stakeholder involvement.

This year projects aiming to enhance climate governance and capacity-building are strongly encouraged to ensure a high impact, e.g. train the trainers' programmes. Pure awareness raising activities (like creating a webpage) are not encouraged. Projects could develop cooperation platforms and share best practices for more effective compliance, enforcement and mainstreaming, and generate support from the public and stakeholders for the Union's policy-making efforts

Type of Funding Grant
Financial details

The maximum EU co-financing rate for LIFE action grant projects is 55% of the total eligible project costs.
There is no fixed minimum size for project budgets. While large ambitious projects (i.e. over 5 Mio. € total costs) have been financed several times in the past, small projects (i.e. below 500 000 € total costs) have seldom succeeded due to the limited output and consequently the low added value. 

Submission

"Traditional" projects applicants must use only the eProposal tool to create and submit proposal(s). Access is provided via this link. All other types of projects must use the application forms provided in the corresponding application package.
