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 under the sub-programme for Environment shall be dedicated to projects supporting the conservation of nature and biodiversity.

For further information about all the features of the 2017 call for action grants, including guidance, links to application packages and links to National Contacts Points, go to the 2017 call page on the LIFE website.

On the 31 May 2017 there will be a LIFE 2017 call information and networking event to explain how to prepare and submit a successful LIFE proposal.
