Types of projects

Under the current financial perspective of the 2014-2020 LIFE Programme, it possible also fund integrated projects and technical assistance projects, in addition to traditional projects - similar to those in past perspectives of the LIFE Programme. Traditional projects are identical to projects that were able to obtain funding from EC funds thus far. Their main aim is to solve or contribute to solve the identified environmental problem. Projects must fit within the scope of the programme and at the same time meet the condition of the pilot demo project on best practices or information – depending on the selected thematic area.
The following are connections between priority areas and types of traditional projects:
