Life 2017: Call For Proposals

An Information & Networking Event on the 2017 funding opportunities for green technology, nature conservation and climate projects under the EU's LIFE programme.

ETRA was invited to participate in the LIFE Information and networking event, organised by the Commission as part of the EU Green Week activities.

The call for proposals was initially launched on 28 April, with submission deadlines in September 2017. 

In 2017, there is more than €390 million available in funding, in particular, for:

  • Environmental technologies and solutions (including close-to-market projects)
  • Climate change adaptation and mitigation measures,
  • Nature conservation and biodiversity projects, and
  • Climate and environmental governance and information initiatives.

More than 500 representatives of businesses, industry, NGOs, and local and regional authorities attended the event on Wednesday, 31 May, between 10:00 - 16:00 in Brussels.

ETRA is analysing all of the various actions and opportunities proposed to identify and select those most appropriate for the sector and for the projects submitted to us by our members. ETRA is working together with a team of colleagues and experts to form a partnership and to prepare a proposal. Whoever is interested may contact us for further information.
