Objective: The LIFE operating grants for non-profit making entities aim to strengthen the participation of civil society in the EU policy dialogue, as well as to support implementation and enforcement of Union environmental and climate objectives by the beneficiaries. The present call for proposals targets operating grants aimed at achieving the objectives of the Environment, Nature, Climate and Clean Energy Transition LIFE sub-programmes.
Operating grants provide general financial support to the successful organisations. They do not support a specific project (like action grants), but the annual operating budget (or part of it) of the organisation.
The EU contribution to the specific operating grant will be defined by applying a maximum co-financing rate of 70% to the total eligible costs. The maximum EU contribution to the operating grant amount per financial year will be EUR 700 000.
The total budget earmarked for grants under this call is EUR 12,370,000.
Expected Impact: The LIFE operating grants for non-profit making entities aim to strengthen the participation of civil society in the EU policy dialogue, as well as to support implementation and enforcement of Union environmental and climate objectives, including the clean energy transition, by the beneficiaries.
Proposals must comply with EU policy interests and priorities (such as environment, social, security, industrial and trade policy, etc.).
Financial support to third parties is not allowed.
Work programmes should be consistent with the action plan submitted for the framework partnership. Only applications that have first been awarded a framework partnership will be considered eligible.
Proposals must relate to activities taking place in EU countries.
Activities outside the EU must be necessary to achieve EU environmental and climate objectives and ensure the effectiveness of interventions carried out within the EU (e.g. actions aimed at the conservation of migratory birds in wintering areas, actions implemented on a trans boundary river, or actions aimed to address environmental problems that cannot be solved successfully or efficiently unless actions are carried out also in non-EU countries).
