LIFE programme 2021-2027

LIFE programme is the EU’s framework funding programme for the environment and climate change. As of 2021, the LIFE programme includes the new Clean Energy Transition sub-programme.
5.432 billion euros

The LIFE programme supports the EU in achieving its European Green Deal ambitions. LIFE aims to transform the EU into a fair and prosperous society with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, where net emissions will be zero by 2050 and economic growth will be decoupled from resource use. The programme aims to achieve these goals, while protecting, conserving and enhancing nature across the continent and safeguarding the health and well-being of citizens from environmental and climate impacts.
