In particular, the European Commission is looking for technologies and solutions capable of implementing market-like conditions on an industrial or commercial scale during the duration of the project. iii) Environmental policy and information – The programme supports projects in the areas of awareness, environmental training and capacity building, compliance with legislation and enforcement, knowledge development and public and stakeholder participation. It co-finances grants for information, awareness and dissemination projects to promote environmental awareness. These include platforms for cooperation and the exchange of knowledge on sustainable environmental solutions and practices. Projects are co-financed up to 55%. 3. Climate Action and Information – The programme funds projects to raise awareness, train and build capacity, comply with legislation and implementation, develop knowledge and engage stakeholders. LIFE provides action grants for information, awareness and dissemination projects on climate issues. These include supporting the development of public policy and stakeholders in EU policy-making, supporting the communication, management and dissemination of information facilitating knowledge sharing and cooperation, promoting and contributing to more effective enforcement of EU climate change legislation, providing training and promoting the development and dissemination of good practices and policy approaches. If you are based outside the EU, you can, as an associate beneficiary, contribute to a project by taking the necessary steps to achieve the EU`s environmental or climate objectives.
Applicants and beneficiaries in the UK will continue to receive LIFE funding for the duration of LIFE 2014-2020 grants, even after the end of the transitional period. This applies to existing grants, ongoing procedures and calls for proposals to be published in 2020, even if the grant is signed after December 31, 2020. The co-ordinating beneficiary must prove his legal status and confirm legal registration in the EU. In addition to the co-ordinating beneficiary, a LIFE proposal may also involve one or more associated beneficiaries and/or one or more co-funders. Associate beneficiaries must always participate technically and financially in the proposal. A project co-funder contributes to the project only with financial means, has no technical responsibility and cannot benefit from the EU`s financial contribution.
