Technical Assistance – Replication – Nature & Biodiversity and Circular Economy & Quality of Life

Summary

The objectives of LIFE Technical Assistance – Replication (TA-R) projects are to facilitate the upscaling or replication of results funded under the LIFE programme or, where relevant to fulfil the objectives of the LIFE programme, under another EU-funded programme.

Detailed Call Description

Only proposals in the field of ‘Environment’ (i.e. ‘Nature and Biodiversity’ and ‘Circular Economy and Quality of Life’) will be eligible for this call.

The TA-R projects could co-finance the activities necessary:

  1. to prepare the up-scaling and/or replication of the results of previous LIFE projects or of other Union programmes, as long as they contribute to the objectives of the LIFE programme.
  2. to facilitate the access of an operation contributing to the LIFE objectives to other financial instruments. This support for investment and replication appears strategic in view to supporting the materialization of green investments on the ground.
