The LIFE programme has launched its 2017 call for proposals, underlining its commitment to supporting projects that protect the environment and tackle the impact of climate change.
The total budget for project action grants in this year’s call is over €373 million. Of this, over €290 million is foreseen for the sub-programme for Environment and over €82 million for the sub-programme for Climate Action. At least 55% of the budgetary resources allocated to projects supported by way of action grants under the sub-programme for Environment shall be dedicated to projects supporting the conservation of nature and biodiversity.
In this year’s call the Commission is particularly interested in close-to-market projects, i.e. projects that propose a new solution with clear environmental and/or climate benefits and which have a level of technical and business readiness allowing them to implement their solution in close-to-market conditions.
