Integrated Projects are a new type of project that aim to improve the implementation of environment and climate policy by focusing on the implementation of environmental or climate plans and strategies on a larger territorial scale (e.g. regional, multi-regional, national). Integrated Projects are an important aspect of the new LIFE regulation. They will mean that LIFE can be used not only as a tool for providing environmental solutions, but also as a catalyst to leverage funds from other sources. The Commission funding will be split 30/70 between IPs and traditional projects.
These projects should improve the integration of environment and climate aspects into other EU policies. To do this they will need to be inclusive, so they require stakeholders to be involved.
