LIFE+, the new Financial Instrument for the Environment, entered into force in June 2007. It comprises three components: “LIFE+ Nature & Biodiversity”, “LIFE+ Environment Policy & Governance” and “LIFE+ Information & Communication”.
GMES is explicitly mentioned as priority action in the application guidelines for this year’s selection period under the LIFE+ component “Environment Policy & Governance”.
The European Commission has published draft application guidelines for the 2007 call for proposals under the LIFE+ programme. These draft guidelines have been published in order to help project applicants begin work on their project proposals, ahead of the submission deadline of the first LIFE+ call for proposals (30/11/2007). The final application guidelines will be published together with the formal call of proposals in the second half of September.
