Since the launch of the LIFE programme by the European Commission in 1992, a total of 68 projects have been financed in Romania. Of these, 22 focus on environmental innovation, 42 on nature conservation and three on information and communication. Under the new LIFE programme (see below), one capacity-building project has been co-funded by the EU in Romania. The aim is to improve the capacity for supporting potential LIFE project applicants in Romania, so that more successful applications are submitted to the LIFE programme.
Altogether, these LIFE projects represent an investment of €53 million, of which €30 million has been contributed by the EU.
