JNCC has been the UK LIFE National Contact Point service from 01 January 2016. We provide a free and confidential support service for the LIFE Programme in the UK on behalf of Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) and the Devolved UK Administrations. Our service includes a helpline, pre-screening of proposals for eligibility and fit and advice on administrative and contractual issues. Below is a summary of some of the services that we provide.



Please see the events webpage regarding upcoming events.


Concept note

We will review concept notes throughout the year.  Please download the concept note template and return it to us via email to enable us to evaluate the eligibility of your proposal.  We have also produced a guidance document to support the completion of the concept note template.

  • For Environment, sub-programme the deadline for submission of proposals to the Commission is the 12-14 June 2018, dependent on topic. The NCP will not accept concept notes for pre-screening after the 7th June.
  • The deadline for  submission of proposals to the Commission for the Climate Action sub-programme is 12th September 2018.


PLEASE NOTE: JNCC’s concept note template is NOT the same as the LIFE programme’s concept note which is required for LIFE Environment projects submitted within the 2018 Call. NB. LIFE Climate projects are NOT required to submit a concept note in the 2018 Call. JNCC has developed its own concept note template which it will revise using the LIFE programme’s concept note as it basis.
