LIFE 2017: Up to 60% co-financing for close-to-market environment and climate solutions

06/04/2017
The European Commission will launch a new call for proposals under the LIFE programme on 28 April 2017, with application deadlines in September 2017. Nearly €260 million in funding will be available for environment and climate projects ("traditional projects").

The Commission is particularly interested in close-to-market projects, i.e. projects that:

  • propose a new, demonstrative solution able to bring clear environmental and/or climate benefits, e.g. in the fields of waste management, circular economy, resource efficiency, climate change mitigation, and water; and
  • have a level of technical and business readiness allowing them to implement their solution in close-to-market conditions (i.e. at industrial or commercial scale) during the project duration. 

Interested applicants should consider applying to the traditional projects call for proposals in the following priority areas:
