The 2009 call for proposals for projects funded under the new LIFE+ programme will be published on May 15.
28 January 2009 DG ENV is planning to launch its 2009 call for proposals for LIFE+ projects on May 15 2009. The 2009 applications package will be made available on that date on the LIFE website.
Since the LIFE unit anticipates that there are unlikely to be significant changes with respect to the 2008 call, it recommends that potential applicants begin preparing their applications using the 2008 applications package.
This is available to download below. It is important to note however that applicants MUST submit their proposals using the 2009 application forms that will be made available on May 15.
In principle, a maximum of EUR 250 million will be available for the 2009 call.
For this second LIFE+ call for proposals, the deadline for the submission of proposals to the Member States is 21 November 2008 (see timetable). A total amount of €207,5 million is available for the 2008 call for proposals.
This second call for proposals for LIFE+ has been published in the Official Journal (2008/C 178/20) on 15 July 2008.

National authorities had the possibility to publish national annual priorities chosen from the Annex II of the LIFE+ Regulation according to a standard format. Eleven countries have chosen to do so for 2008.
See the evaluation guide to learn more about how the national annual priorities are taken into account.
