LIFE Programme call for proposals open

The 2015 call for the LIFE programme action grants is now open. LIFE is the EU’s funding programme for life logoenvironmental, nature conservation and climate action projects.

There are two sub-programmes:

  • Environment covering Nature and Biodiversity, Environment and Resource Efficiency and Environmental Governance and Information;
  • Climate Action covering Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change Adaptation and Climate Governance and Information.

Deadlines vary from 15 September to 7 October depending on the activity. In each sub-programme there are grants for different kinds of activity – traditional projects, preparatory projects, integrated projects, technical assistance projects and capacity building. The differences are explained in the call documents and in this orientation document which explains the main features of the LIFE Programme. In some cases, there is a two-stage application procedure requiring a concept note at the first stage.

It is important to note that LIFE grants provide co-financing which means that the European Commission will generally fund 60-75% of the project costs.
