From Zabala Innovation we join the celebration of the 30th anniversary of LIFE. This is the only European programme dedicated exclusively to the environment and climate action.
During its thirty years of existence, we have been able to witness first-hand the enormous growth of the LIFE Programme and the increased interest it has generated in recent years.
“The first LIFE dossier we prepared was in 2004, and since then, we have worked hard, submitting more than 100 proposals. We have achieved important milestones in recent years, such as representing 12% of the proposals in Europe that went from concept note to full proposal in 2020, or 14% of the projects funded in Spain in the 2014-2020 Programme”, explains Maite Zazpe, leader of the Environment Area at Zabala Innovation.
In this involvement in the LIFE Programme it is also worth highlighting the obtaining of two LIFE projects integrated in the adaptation to climate change at regional level in Navarre and the Basque Country, NADAPTA and URBAN KLIMA 2050. In addition, we have obtained funding for practically all the typologies and thematic areas of the LIFE Programme.
“At Zabala Innovation we are proud to have helped so many entities to prepare their projects, to materialise them and to be able to experience them first hand. The gratitude that the LIFE Programme has shown towards our work encourages us to continue growing and improving every day. That is why we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of LIFE with this innovative spirit and the illusion of achieving a more sustainable world for the next generations”, concludes Maite Zazpe.
On LIFE’s 30th anniversary, we at Zabala Innovation would like to join in the congratulations with this video thanking them for all their work. Here’s to many more years, LIFE!
