This edition of LIFEnews focuses on the first LIFE platform meeting dedicated to Integrated Projects (LIFE IPs). These are projects designed to implement environmental and climate legislation and goals on a wider scale than traditional LIFE projects, in particular by mobilising complementary funding from EU and national sources and the private sector.
The lead article reveals what has been learned about complementary funding in the first year of LIFE IPs, including contributions from the LIFE Unit, the Finnish National Contact Point and two projects. The second article showcases the nine new Integrated Projects funded in the 2015 LIFE call.
The newsletter LIFEnews, issued every month, features information on the LIFE programme, presents successful projects and identifies events and publications linked to the programme.
