European Funding for Urban Nature

Rik De Vreese

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingMeeting abstract (Book)


The presentation will give a concise overview of European funding schemes with anchor points towards urban forestry, green infrastructure and urban greening. Europe offers a whole range of funding schemes, some very strict and topic-oriented, others rather broad and open to innovative ideas. The presentation will include a discussion of environment-oriented funds such as LIFE+, but also openings within e.g. InterReg of ERASMUS+ will be discussed.

We will also very briefly touch upon challenges and threats to grant writing for European projects, not in the least finding co-financing.
