The LIFE multiannual work programme for 2014-2017 sets the framework for the next four years for the management of the new LIFE Programme 2014-2020 and gives information on the indicative budget and the selection methodology for projects and for operating grants. It also establishes outcome indicators for the two LIFE sub-programmes – for Environment and for Climate Action. The total budget for funding projects during the period covered amounts to €1.1 billion under the sub-programme for Environment and €0.36 billion under the sub-programme for Climate Action. For the first time LIFE project funding also will be provided through innovative financial instruments.
The first calls are scheduled for May/June 2014.
