New initiatives to help boost LIFE programme participation
The European Commission has decided to fund capacity building activities in 14 Member States to increase their participation in the EU's LIFE programme supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects.
Member States with a relatively low share of successful applicants to the LIFE programme will receive up to €1 million for capacity building activities. The grant will allow them to carry out a set of actions such as hiring additional staff for LIFE national or regional contact points, organising training sessions for potential applicants, creating a network of potential applicants, exchanging best practises among Member States or running targeted communication campaigns.
