The 2010 call for proposals for the LIFE+ Programme has now opened, with up to €243 million available for co-financing of projects.
LIFE+ aims at co-funding actions in the field of nature conservation (LIFE+ Nature and Biodiversity) as well as in other fields of the environment that are of European interest (LIFE+ Environment and Governance). A third component of LIFE+ aims specifically at co-funding information and communication activities for the environment (LIFE+ Information and Communication).
More information can be found on the Marine Institute's dedicated Life+ Webpage and on the LIFE+ website.
In addition to this, web information sessions are held in all EU member states. The Information Session for Irish Proposals will take place on 3rd June, 2010 at the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government offices in Dublin. For further details, email: LifeIE@mwhglobal.com
Closing date for receipt of proposals is 1st September 2010.
