LIFE Programme: funding instrument for Environment and Climate

The LIFE Programme is the EU funding instrument for the Environment and Climate. It has co-financed thousands of projects in the field! The latest LIFE Programme for the period 2021-2027 has total budget of €5,432 billion.

At Catalyze, we have obtained funding for a wide range of companies, legal entities and academic groups.

The programme aims to:

  1. Help make the shift towards a more sustainable, circular, energy-efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and – resilient economy.
  2. Protect, restore and enhance our environment.
  3. Halt biodiversity loss.
  4. Encourage and support green ideas from both private enterprises, NGOs and civil society organizations, and public authorities.

The LIFE Programme aims to help the EU to reach its European Climate and Environment ambitions by:

    • Transforming the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy where there are zero net emissions in 2050 and where economic growth is separate from resource use.
    • Protecting, conserving and enhancing nature across the continent.
    • Safeguarding the health and well-being of citizens from environment and climate-related impacts.
