The last LIFE information day was held on May 4 in Brussels.

The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value. LIFE began in 1992. During this period, LIFE has co-financed some 3954 projects across the EU, contributing approximately €3.1 billion to the protection of the environment.

This event is dedicated to explaining the LIFE programme, significant changes compared to previous years and facilitate the networking with fellow participants to share experience, match with potential new partners and meet representatives of the LIFE programme from the European Commission.

David Sabatés, Innovation Project Manager at ITeC, attend to move forward a specific proposal which wants to demonstrate a new Green Public Procurement (GPP) system that facilitate the environment assessment considering the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of public buildings.

Green Public Procurement (GPP) is defined by the European Commission as a process whereby public authorities seek to procure goods, services and works with a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle when compared to goods, services and works with the same primary function that would otherwise be procured.
