LIFE (The Financial Instrument for the Environment) contributes to the implementation, development and enhancement of the Community environmental policy and legislation as well as the integration of the environment into other EU policies. It also supports the development of new solutions to environmental problems facing the EU.
Between 464 proposals for funding through the LIFE-Environment programme from a wide range of public and private sector organisations the commission has selected different projects aiming to solve environmental problems:
- Environmental impact of economic activities reduction
- Water management
- Waste management
- Environmental impact of products and services reduction
- Land-use development and planning
The European Commission funds 50 innovation projects in 14 countries with €66 million. These projects will demonstrate new methods and techniques for dealing with a wide diversity of Europe’s environmental problems.Click here to visit the Life Project website
