The European Commission has launched its 2020 call for project proposals under the LIFE programme. Measures have been taken to make it easier for applicants to apply in times of coronavirus restrictions including extended deadlines.

This year, more than €450 million have been earnmarked for nature conservation, environmental protection and climate action projects.

LIFE funds projects under its environment and climate action sub-programmes, thereby helping implement the European Green Deal.

Most LIFE projects are so-called traditional projects that can be coordinated by any legal entity registered in the EU. These include public institutions, businesses and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). A lot of traditional projects show best-practices, run pilots, raise public awareness or demonstrate breakthroughs in environmental practices.

Applications are also being accepted for bigger so-called integrated projects. These projects run strategic EU plans on the environment and the climate and tend to have a regional, multi-regional, national or trans-national dimension.
