The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and BONUS, the joint Baltic Sea research and development programme worth 100 MEUR for the years 2010-2016, have initiated collaboration related to the common aim of securing a better future for the Baltic Sea Region.
Currently, eight BONUS+ projects are achieving BONUS objectives while at the same time contributing to the implementation of the Strategy priorities. Also, a future BONUS stakeholder event will be held in conjunction with the EUSBSR Annual Forum in Gdańsk in Autumn 2011. Matching of BONUS projects with EUSBSR priorities will be further strengthened trough the development of the BONUS Strategic Research Agenda for the years 2012-2016. It will set the priorities for the future calls for proposals that will be opening in 2012.
