The LIFE Clean Energy Transition sub-programme aims at facilitating the transition towards an energy-efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and -resilient economy by funding coordination and support actions (Other Action Grants) across Europe. These are actions of high EU added-value, which are targeted at breaking market barriers that hamper the socio-economic transition to sustainable energy, and typically engage multiple small and medium-sized stakeholders, multiple actors including local and regional public authorities and non-profit organisations, as well as consumers.
The LIFE Clean Energy Transition sub-programme continues to support the delivery of EU policies in the field of sustainable energy, in particular, the European Green Deal, the Energy Union (2030 energy and climate targets) and the European Union’s 2050 long-term decarbonisation strategy.
There are 18 dedicated topics open to submit your project ideas to:

Please note that the UK is not at the moment associated to the LIFE programme. It is possible to participate in consortia (with at least three participating countries, i.e EU27 + Iceland) but in principle UK is not eligible for funding – unless proven that the role is essential in the proposal.
How should a partner consortium be composed?
For most topics you need to create a consortium of at least 3 applicants (beneficiaries; not affiliated entities) from 3 different eligible countries. However, a few topics are open to apply with one applicant only. Please check the specific topic conditions and the Call Document
