Until 2013 the European Union's LIFE+ Programme (Nature & Biodiversity, Environmental Policy & Governance and Information & Communication) has funded environmental projects thus contributing to the integration of the environment into other policies. From January 2014, a new financing program called LIFE + has entered into force, and will run until 2020.
SUN LIFE is one of the 12 Italian projects funded in 2013 by the European LIFE+ Nature & Biodiversity Programme as its proposed actions were considered a contribution to the implementation of Community policies on nature and biodiversity and to the development of the Natura 2000 Network.
