Held to mark the launch of the LIFE 2018 Call for project proposals, the 2018 LIFE Information Day highlighted opportunities for applicants in Ireland to apply for European Union funding for projects relating to environmental protection, nature, and climate action. Key aspects of the 2018 Call were highlighted, including the newly introduced two stage, simplified, submission process for environment projects.
Potential applicants also heard very useful advice from the successful
Kerry LIFE and
WISER LIFE projects on the twin challenges of submitting a LIFE application and implementing a project.
A Senior Project Adviser from the EU Commission was on hand to speak on Close-to-Market LIFE projects - aimed at providing EU LIFE funding to those working on a commercial solution to an environmental or climate challenge. Proceedings concluded with a question and answer session, which generated an interesting discussion. The presentations from the day can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on the links below.
