Synopsis: This call for proposals addresses the priority areas of climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, and climate governance and information under the LIFE climate action sub-programme.
In contrast to other funding programmes LIFE projects are very flexible in terms of how they are set up. You can decide if you want to run a project on your own, or if you prefer to join forces with partners from your own or another country. However, in the case of integrated projects, the applicants should include in the partnership the authority in charge of the implementation of the plan or strategy targeted by the project, preferably as project leader.
If you apply without any partners or are the project leader among several partners, you will be referred to as coordinating beneficiary. Other partners who contribute but do not lead a project are associated beneficiaries. Associated beneficiaries must be responsible for one or more project actions and must contribute financially to the project.
If you are based outside the EU, you can contribute to a project as associated beneficiary by undertaking actions that are necessary for achieving the environmental or climate goals of the EU.
