LIFE is the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental and nature conservation projects throughout the EU
The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) invites non-governmental organisations (NGOs) active in the field of environment and/or climate action to present proposals for the LIFE operating grants. These grants cover certain administrative and operational costs for the financial year 2015.
The objective of the call is to promote better environmental and/or climate governance by broadening the involvement of stakeholders, including NGOs, in policy consultation and implementation. The expected result is to support the strengthening of civil society participation in the dialogue process of environmental and/or climate policy development and implementation.
The indicative total budget available for operating grants for this call is €9 000 000. The maximum EU-funding rate is 70% of the eligible costs of the operating budget of the beneficiary organisation for its 2015 budgetary year. The maximum amount that may be requested and awarded is fixed at €900 000 per grant.
Deadline: 15 October 2014 for submission by post. 15 October 2014, 16h00 Brussels local time for hand-delivery.
