Call for proposals 2021 - LIFE Subprogramme Climate Action LIFE-2021-SAP-CLIMA Open!


Standard Action Projects aim to: 

  • develop, demonstrate and promote innovative techniques, methods and approaches;  
  • contribute to the knowledge base and to the application of best practice;
  • support the development, implementation, monitoring and enforcement of the EU legislation and policy, including by improving governance at all levels, in particular through enhancing capacities of public and private actors and the involvement of civil society;

Projects can be close-to-market (i.e. aim not only at delivering improved environmental solutions, but also at making sure such solutions are widely taken up by society in general and, more particularly, by the economy through an explicit market-oriented approach). In this case, applicants will be required to highlight specific market-related information in their Application Forms (e.g. planned production capacity, reference market, economic feasibility etc.).
