URGENT MESSAGE – EXTENTION OF THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE

Due to technical problems the eProposals has been temporarily not accessible on 24 and 25 June 2013. As foreseen in the application guide Part 2 the LIFE Unit has decided to compensate the down periods by extending the official deadline for submission of LIFE+ proposals to National Authorities.

The new deadline is fixed at 26 June 2013 at 16:00 Brussels time.


The European Commission launched the final LIFE Call for Proposals on the 19th February. As per usual, the call is open for project application across the European Union targeting the environment under three headings: nature and biodiversity, environment policy and governance, and information and communication.

The National Contact Point within the Ministry for Tourism, Culture and the Environment in collaboration with the Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC) organised a LIFE Information Session which was held at Europe House in Valletta on 1st March 2013. During this information session participants got to know more about LIFE, the 2013 call for proposal and about ongoing projects in Malta.

About LIFE+


The LIFE+ Programme is the European Union's financial instrument supporting environmental policy for the period 2007 to 2013 and succeeds other LIFE environment programmes. Although other programmes exist that partly relate to the environment, LIFE is the only EU funding programme that is entirely devoted to improving the environmental wellbeing of the Community. LIFE+ is governed by Regulation 614/2007 of 23 May 2007.

The current LIFE+ programme contains three main strands, namely:

  1. LIFE+ Nature & Biodiversity
  2. LIFE+ Environmental Policy and Governance
  3. LIFE+ Information & Communication
