The European Commission’s 2017 call for applications is due to open in mid-May, and is expected to reflect an increased emphasis on transnational projects.
The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, as National Contact Point in Ireland, invites you to this Information day, as a means of promoting the LIFE programme and assisting potential applicants in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Focus on the day will include:
• providing potential applicants with the opportunity to hear about a successful Irish project and avail of that project’s team’s experience of the LIFE programme;
• a Workshop “Play your LIFE cards right” – interactive session focused on eligibility/LIFE Programme priorities – facilitated by JNCC (UK LIFE National Contact Point); and
• presentations on practical issues such as tips on preparing and writing a LIFE Programme application.
Places are limited and priority will be given to groups with definite plans to submit a LIFE Programme application this year or in subsequent calls.
