The LIFE programme is the only EU funding programme dedicated entirely to environmental, climate and energy objectives.

The Programme was established in 1992 and has since funded more than 5500 projects. Its budget for the financial period 2021-2027 is 5,4 billion EUR.

LIFE Programme thoroughly supports the goals of European Green Deal in its transformation of the EU into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, ensuring no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and economic growth decoupled from resource use.

It also funds activities in the areas of protection, conservation and strengthening of the EU’s natural capital as well as protection of citizens’ health and wellbeing from risks and impacts related to environment and climate.
