What type of projects are eligible?

LIFE can be applied by any organisation, from companies to knowledge institutions. It must be a project that is in line with European nature, climate and environmental policy. Smaller projects (smaller than €500,000) are generally not likely to qualify for funding under the ‘Standard Action Projects’. Moreover, projects must be new, i.e. new methods or practices are applied and demonstrated.
