Funding for eight strategic LIFE 2023 projects
The European Commission has announced an investment of €116 million for strategic LIFE projects in 2023. This funding will help eight major nature, environment and climate action projects to achieve their objectives. The strategic LIFE eCoadapt50 project, presented by Zabala Innovation, will receive €11.6 million to raise awareness of climate change adaptation.
The projects will be implemented in Belgium, Estonia, Spain, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Finland. The projects are expected to mobilise significant additional funds from other EU funding sources, such as agricultural, structural, regional and research funds, in addition to national funds and private sector investments.
