About LIFE

LIFE is the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental and nature conservation projects throughout the EU

With a budget of €2.143 billion (for the period 2007-2013), LIFE+ is a limited but focused funding instrument providing specific support to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental policy and legislation.

Since 1992, LIFE has co-financed some 3708 projects, contributing approximately €2.8 billion to the protection of the environment.

The LIFE support is comprised of three components:

  • LIFE+ Nature & Biodiversity
  • LIFE+ Environment Policy & Governance
  • LIFE+ Information & Communication

Within the LIFE+ Environmental Policy & Governance, a specific topic is dedicated to water-related projects. This thematic section aims at supporting the implementation of EU water policy by addressing a wide range of issues, such as urban water management, industrial wastewater treatment, river basin monitoring and improving groundwater quality.
The AQUAENVEC project belongs to the LIFE+ Environmental Policy & Governance category.
