LIFE Programme 2021 – 2027 – factsheet
LIFE is EU’s funding programme dedicated to environmental and climate objectives. It is divided in two main portfolios – Environment and Climate Action.
The Clean Energy Transition sub-programme is a new feature of LIFE 2021-2027. It is the first time that the clean energy transition is specifically covered within LIFE programme. It will be a continuation of the market uptake activities that are currently funded under Horizon 2020. The aim is to support the shift towards a clean energy, especially in regions that lag behind and have difficulty to absorb funding from the European structural and investment funds. It will encourage investments in projects focusing in particular on energy efficiency and small-scale renewables.
