LIFE: Seeking Applications for its Environment and Resource Efficiency Programme

Deadline: 12 June 2018(Concept Notes)

LIFE is seeking applications for its Environment and Resource Efficiency Programme, which aims specifically at contributing to the implementation, updating and development of European Union environmental policy and legislation, including the integration of the environment into other policies, thereby contributing to sustainable development.

LIFE also aims to bridge the gap between research, policy and development results and widespread implementation, and to improve innovative solutions.

LIFE Environment and Resource Efficiency support will be allocated to the best proposals in terms of innovative solutions for important environmental issues, leading to viable as well as qualitatively and quantitatively measurable concrete results.

Proposals must be highly visible and technically and financially sound. They should incorporate the dissemination of knowledge. The demonstration character is particularly important; projects must be implemented on a technical scale that allows evaluation of technical and economic viability of large scale introduction.

LIFE is the European Programme for the Environment and Climate Action, for the period from 1 January 2014 until 31 December 2020.

Priority Areas

The priority area Environment and Resource Efficiency focuses on:

  • Developing, testing and demonstrating policy or management approaches, best practices and solutions to environmental challenges and in support of resource efficiency related policy and legislation, including the Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe.
  • Improving the knowledge base for the development, implementation, assessment, monitoring and evaluation of Union environmental policy and legislation, and for the assessment and monitoring of the factors, pressures and responses that impact on the environment within and outside the Union.

Funding Information

  • The amount available for co-financing action grants for all types of “traditional” projects under the Environment sub-programme is indicatively set at EUR 217 000 000
