Call 2017

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.

 

For the sub-programme for Environment, the call covers action grants for "Traditional" projects, Preparatory projects, Integrated projects and Technical Assistance projects. 


For the sub-programme for Climate Action, this call will cover action grants for "
Traditional projects", Integrated projects and Technical Assistance projects.

 

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.

 

Applications are welcomed from public bodies, private commercial organisations and private non-commercial organisations (NGOs). Proposals may be submitted by legal persons (entities) registered in the EU.

 

Applicants are advised to note that new features have been introduced for "Traditional" projects in the 2017 call. They are summarised in the first pages of the Guidelines in each application package and detailed further in the different sections.
