The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. Since 1992, LIFE has co-financed some 4500 projects aiming to preserve Europe’s nature and biodiversity, reduce the environmental impact of several human activities and fight climate change. In the area of water, the progamme has co-funded over 580 projects of which more than 250 are exclusively on wastewater management.
In the framework of the 2017 EIP Water conference, LIFE is organising a technical event entitled ‘The LIFE programme: funding opportunities & innovative solutions on wastewater treatment’. The event will take place on 26 September at 2pm.
The aim of this technical event is to showcase and disseminate a selection of the latest and most replicable solutions developed by LIFE in the field of wastewater treatment. Additionally, the event will include presentations on the programme’s topics in the water sector for the following years as well as a slot on LIFE funding opportunities and future call for projects.
The LIFE event is of interest to:
- Investors and stakeholders in the water sector in search of innovative and marketable solutions to reduce the environmental impact of wastewater treatment; and
- Potential applicants to the LIFE call for projects.
Registration can be made in this link. The number of places is limited.
The draft agenda can be found here.
More information about the funding opportunities of LIFE is available on the website of the LIFE programme.
