This year, any traditional or integrated LIFE project and any type of beneficiary can claim, through a total cost of durable goods, whether they meet certain conditions. These conditions assume that the products are used intensively during the project, that they are definitively and exclusively allocated to the same objectives and objectives as those envisaged by the project and that they are used for their entire economic life. Link: Call for proposals for funding life 2017.Download the updated 2019 grant agreement – January 2020 Version Please note that, pending the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, EU legislation remains applicable to the UK and UK in terms of rights and obligations. These include the ability of UK corporations to participate fully and obtain funds under the LIFE programme. However, please note that eligibility criteria must be met for the duration of the grant. Between November and March next year, expert groups will evaluate proposals for selecting the best funding proposals. In early 2018, the European Commission will inform all applicants of the outcome or not of their proposal. Project proposals will be revised and grant agreements will be developed in spring 2018 so that new projects can be launched from July 2018. All projects can financially support local initiatives that can contribute to the project`s objective.
This support takes the form of grants that the recipient can provide (within certain limits) to third parties responsible for such initiatives. We hope to facilitate access to LIFE funding, even very small local groups that are unable to act as associated beneficiaries of the project, but who could play a role in achieving the project`s objectives. The total grant budget for projects this year is more than 373 million euros. Of this amount, more than 290 million euros are planned for the “Environment” sub-program and more than 82 million euros for the climate policy sub-programme. At least 55% of the budget allocated to projects supported under the Environment sub-programme is earmarked for projects supporting the conservation of nature and biodiversity. For the Environment sub-program, the call includes action grants for “traditional” projects, preparatory projects, integrated projects and technical assistance projects. For the climate action sub-programme, this call includes action grants for “traditional projects,” integrated projects and technical assistance projects. If the UK withdraws from the EU during the eligibility period without reaching an agreement with the EU, in particular to ensure that UK applicants remain eligible, you will no longer be entitled to EU funds (while you participate, where possible) or to leave the project on the basis of the relevant articles of the subsidy agreement.
