First Calls for Proposals of LIFE 2021-2027 launched
On 13 July, the first LIFE Call for Proposals opened under the new LIFE programme 2021-2027, which comprises four sub-programmes: nature & biodiversity, circular economy and quality of life, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and the clean energy transition. This first LIFE Call for Proposals 2021 offers a budget of over 580€ million to fund new projects.
The conservation of nature and biodiversity, including water ecosystems, remains a decisive area of action for the LIFE Program. A new type of projects, strategic nature projects, are introduced to support programmes of action in the Member States for the mainstreaming of nature and biodiversity policy objectives into other EU policies and to ensure that relevant funds are leveraged to implement these objectives.
Moreover, the LIFE programme 2021 – 2027 continues its substantial support to projects related to the implementation of air and water quality plans and legislation at a local, regional, national and trans-national level.
