Since its beginnings in 1992, the LIFE Programme has co-financed more than 5,400 projects with an overall budget of approximately €6,500M. LIFE is dedicated to targeting climate, environmental, and biodiversity challenges in the European Union. Its new edition, LIFE 2021-2027, was officially announced in April 2021 (R EU 2021/783) and has officially launched in July 2021.
The European Commission -through the recently created European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA)-, launched the LIFE Programme 2021 Call for proposals with over EUR 580 million available.
