In the program period 2014-2020, the LIFE Program has been structured in two sub-programs: SUB-PROGRAMME FOR ENVIRONMENT and SUB-PROGRAMME FOR CLIMATE ACTION.
The projects, eligible for co-funding under the LIFE Program have been classified in four main categories:
- Traditional projects: best practice, innovation and demonstration projects, as well as dissemination/information projects and governance projects (similar to LIFE+)
- Integrated projects: projects aiming at the implementation of plans and strategies required by EU legislation in the areas of nature, water, waste, air
- Preparatory projects: projects identified by the Commission to support specific needs for the implementation and development of EU environmental or climate policy and legislation
- Capacity building projects: financial support to the activities required to build the capacity of Member States with a view to enabling their more effective participation in LIFE
