Restore4Life is working to reinstate lateral connectivity in riverine corridors in the Danube basin by creating new blue-green infrastructure. The Restore4Life consortium is excited to announce that a Call for Associated Regions will be launched on 1 February 2024.  


The aim of the call will be to share the results and knowledge of the project on an ongoing basis with five selected Associated Regions. These Associated Regions will be provided with scientific and technical support to implement wetland restoration measures in their territories. This exercise will involve twinning each Associated Region with a similar project demonstration site. Restore4Life will then provide technical advice and tools, enabling the Associated Regions to prepare roadmaps, plans and projects to implement innovative solutions, aimed at restoring wetland ecosystems. 

Eligible applicants: 

Local and/or regional authorities and associated countries to the Horizon Europe programme are eligible to apply as Associated Regions. Countries that are part of the Restore4Life consortium therefore cannot participate are: Austria, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.  

See details on eligibility criteria


Each associated region can apply for a grant of up to EUR 100 000. 


Project implementation is expected to start after July 2024, and project end is expected after February 2027.
