The LIFE programmelife

The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value.

The LIFE funding programme has been running since 1992 and has co-financed more than 4000 projects across the EU and beyond, mobilising € 7.8 billion. Around 1100 projects are ongoing. The budget for the LIFE Programme for 2014–2020 is set at € 3.4 billion, and has a sub-programme for environment and a sub-programme for climate action.
