LIFE 2021 Calls


 The LIFE programme is divided into two strands: one for the environment and another for climate action.

The environment strand has two sub-programmes:

  1. Nature and biodiversity
  2. Circular economy and quality of life

The climate action strand also has two sub-programmes:

  1. Climate change mitigation and adaptation
  2. Clean energy transition (continuation of H2020 Energy Efficiency market uptake)

LIFE will publish two Multi-Annual Work Programmes (MAWP) for the 2021-2024 and 2025-2027 timeframes. These will include details on:

  • the four sub-programmes
  • funding allocation
  • types of projects and co-financing rates
  • submission and selection procedures, including award criteria
  • Calls for Proposals timelines

Each year, LIFE will publish Calls for Proposals for different types of projects.

From 1 April 2021, the LIFE programme will be managed by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA).
