Priorities and funded actions


  • To facilitate trans-national co-operation between LIFE National Contact Points (NCPs) with a view to identifying and sharing good practices and improving the support to LIFE programme applicants, thus increasing their successful participation;
  • To give special attention to enhancing the competence of NCPs, including helping less experienced NCPs to rapidly acquire the know-how built up in other countries;
  • To build, as far as possible, on the existing knowledge and tools generated by one or more the NCP, avoiding duplication and establishing synergies;
  • To open up to the participation of all NCPs, including the ones from OCTs and non-EU countries (newly) associated to the LIFE Programme, and encourage the active involvement of each NCP;
  • To organize yearly NCP Trainings and to cover the period of 2.5 years.


  • Priority 1: Contribute to an improved and professionalized NCP service across Europe, thereby helping simplify access to LIFE programme calls for proposals, lowering the entry barriers for newcomers, and raising the average quality of proposals submitted;
