The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. Introduced in 2014, LIFE Integrated Projects’ main aim is to help Member States comply with key EU environmental, nature and climate legislation.

New LIFE programme funding will unlock more than € 3.2 billion of additional support to 12 large-scale environmental and climate projects in 10 Member States to support Europe’s transition to a low-carbon, circular economy.  The funding will support projects in Austria, Bulgaria, Czechia, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Portugal and Slovenia.

For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission is proposing to increase funding by almost 60% for LIFE.
