The project LIFE-IP 4 NATURA (LIFE16 IPE/GR/000002) is the first LIFE Integrated Project (LIFE IP) ever approved for Greece and the most important nature conservation project of the last decades for the country. It constitutes the first centrally coordinated initiative to implement the Greek PAF on a national regional and local scale.
The project’s objective is to substantially enhance Greece’s nature conservation framework in a way that simultaneously ensures the country’s compliance with the European Union’s nature legislation. That is why the project’s framework cohesively integrates actions covering all aspects of nature protection: policy, economy, society and science.

LIFE-IP: N2K Revisited (LIFE17 IPE/CZ/000005) – Integrated LIFE project for the Natura 2000 network in the Czech Republic.
The main objective of the LIFE-IP: N2K Revisited project is to establish a more effective management system for Natura 2000 network sites in the Czech Republic. The aim is to link appropriate management more effectively with corresponding planning, based on accurate assessments of status and trends of the target features, accompanied by cooperation with land users. The project will effectively utilise knowledge of the benefits provided by natural capital to society and take into account relevant costs. The project will also support regional authorities, municipalities and land users to help them mobilise their own resources, including recommendations for the EU 2027+ programming period.

LIFE ENABLE (LIFE20 PRE/DE/000009) – Creating the European Natura Academy for applied Blended LEarning.
The project aims to equip Natura 2000 site managers with the competencies they need now and for the future, by applying a blended learning approach. The project will create a European training system called the ‘European Natura Academy’, which will implement a range of actions to support practical capacity building for effective nature management. The project team will analyse existing training courses and capacity building programmes to identify possible synergies and gaps in provision; produce and test an online training needs analysis tool to help create capacity building training programmes in at least five Member States; and further develop the networking mobile phone app (piloted in LIFE eNatura2000.edu) to raise awareness of the European Natura Academy.
