In 2021 as well as in the following years, the LIFE programme hopes to receive more applications for funding ecological restoration, including those focusing on species and habitats protected by the EU Birds and Habitats Directives. Therefore, the LIFE programme will host a webinar entitled LIFE funding for Ecological Restoration: How to develop a successful proposal, in the framework of the SERE Conference 2021.

The objective of this course is to increase the knowledge of ecological restoration professionals about EU funding opportunities through the LIFE programme and EU priorities for financing, and to demonstrate that possibilities for conservation actions are not only limited to species and habitats protected by the EU Birds and Habitats Directives. During the course participants will be presented with many good examples not only from LIFE Nature and Biodiversity sub-programme but also from LIFE Environment and LIFE Climate Action.

As this training is addressed to a broad range of stakeholders, it would allow for networking, valuable transfer of skills, and a number of tips for the preparation of a successful LIFE proposal. As a result, professionals working in ecological restoration will be provided with a good basis for accessing the necessary EU funding for the implementation of restoration actions.

Among the speakers we will have key representatives from CINEA, the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency that manages the LIFE programme.

REGISTER – The deadline for registration is Thursday 26 August.
