LIFE is the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental and nature conservation projects throughout the EU. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental policy and legislation by co-financing pilot or demonstration projects with European added value. Since 1992, LIFE has co-financed some 4 000 projects, contributing approximately €3.1 billion to the protection of the environment.

The new LIFE Regulation was published on 20 December 2013. The Regulation establishes the Environment and Climate Action sub-programmes of the LIFE Programme for the next funding period, 2014–2020.

A new call for proposals is launched every year.
