Project title

Framework Contract Assistance and technical support for the evaluation of LIFE+ proposals

Project description

STELLA and AGRECO are assisting the European Commission in the evaluation of LIFE+ proposals submitted under the 2012 and 2013 calls for proposals. LIFE+, the Financial Instrument for the Environment, finances pilot or demonstration projects with European-added value to support the implementation of EU environmental policy. The programme provides two kinds of co-financing: i) LIFE+ Action grants covering three components: LIFE+ Nature and Biodiversity, LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance, and LIFE+ Information and Communication; and ii) LIFE+ operating grants for environmental NGOs. STELLA and AGRECO experts are currently evaluating more than 1,000 proposals submitted under the 2012 calls for proposals for LIFE+ action grants and NGO operating grants.
