Apply to the call for networking events to build LIFE proposals in 2021

The European Commission launched a call to support the promotion or organisation of small networking events (between 20 and 40 participants) addressing the conservation and management issues related to habitat types, species and management themes of the Natura 2000 network. The scope is to facilitate knowledge transfer and developed joint actions among stakeholders of different EU Member States, also in view of the forthcoming 2021 LIFE call of proposals.

The events can be proposed by different organisations, such a member State, a Natura 2000 management body, Natura 2000 landowners, a scientific institute or any other organisation involved in the management of Natura 2000. The Commission will select themes which are relevant to one or more Natura 2000 biogeographical regions and notify them by March 2020, for instance on:

  • Stakeholder involvement and awareness raising
  • The implications of the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 on site management or conservation policy
  • Financing of Natura 2000
  • Definition of habitat types, favourable reference values or priorities
  • Integrated implementation of the Nature Directives and the Water Framework Directive, the Common Agricultural Policy, or other directives
  • Protected habitats or species restoration actions

Also, the Commission will provide technical assistance (e.g. visibility on its webpage, tailored communication) and financial support (up to 3,500 € per event, e.g. Catering, room rental, speakers’ reimbursement), on demand.

Euromontana strongly encourages its members to submit its ideas for such events. The deadline for submitting your proposal is February 22. You can find more information on the submission details and template here.
