The LIFE+ Regulation allows EU Member States to specify national priorities in relation to each LIFE+ call for proposals. For the 2011 call, 6 Member States (Estonia, Greece, Italy, Latvia, The Netherlands, Poland) have exercised this right. Projects from these Member States are more likely to be selected for funding if they are in line with the relevant national priorities, as well as with the LIFE+ criteria.
