LIFE+ is the European Union’s means to provide money for environmental projects. Covering the period 2007-2013, LIFE+ will provide some 1.7 billion for projects linked to nature conservation, environmental technology and the communication of environmental matters.
LIFE+ has three components:
  • LIFE+ Nature and Biodiversity,
  • LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance
  • LIFE+ Information and Communication
LIFE+ is administered in the separate membership countries.
Public and/or private bodies and institutions may receive financing through LIFE+. Only expenditure in the EU countries is eligible at present, although the future participation of certain other countries is possible.
The call for applications is open from the 4th of May and the deadline is the 1st of September.
