About the sub-program

Circular economy and quality of life

Program: LIFE

The Circular economy and quality of life sub-programme aims to promote the transition to a sustainable, circular, non-toxic, energy-efficient and climate-resilient economy, as well as to protect, restore and improve the quality of the environment through direct intervention or by supporting the integration of these goals into other politicians.


Detailed information

LIFE will continue to co-finance projects in the environmental sector, in particular in the circular economy, including resource recovery from waste, water, air, noise, soil and chemical management, as well as environmental management.

The circular economy and quality of life sub-programme mainly provides action grants for projects that implement innovative and best practice solutions in these areas through so-called Standard Action Projects (SAPs). It also covers the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of EU environmental policy and legislation through so-called Strategic Integrated Projects (SIPs). The European Commission will continue to look for solutions ready to be implemented in near-market, industrial or commercial scale for the duration of the project.
