LIFE Networking Event, Cyprus

The Department of Environment, through the  LIFE Cyclamen Project, is hosting a Networking Event, which will be held in the form of:

  1. A live streaming experience sharing event, on Thursday November 19th 2020 (11:00 - 12:30 EET), and
  2. Bilateral virtual meetings (from November 19th until December 31st, 2020).

Current and past LIFE beneficiaries will join LIFE applicants, as well as LIFE enthusiasts who haven’t had the chance to apply for funding yet. Through the exchange of experiences and with the opportunity to have 1:1 virtual meetings with others we hope to assist you in forming new collaborations that will lead to new LIFE Proposals.
