BONUS launches calls that fund projects which address the strategic objectives of the research agenda.
The calls are targeting multi-partner and transnational projects, encouraging adequate participation of small and medium-sized enterprises and other end users.
The calls will include research, innovation, training and dissemination activities.
The projects to be funded will be selected according to the principles of transparency, independent evaluation, co-financing, non-profit, non-retroactivity and financing not cumulated with other EU sources.
The maximum funding available is EUR 100 million for the years 2011-2017. Half of the sum, up to EUR 50 million matching national contributions, is provided by the Seventh EU Research Framework Programme, and the other half by the participating funding institutions.
Given that projects funded by BONUS are to generate new knowledge, products and services in support of decision making in the Baltic Sea region in particular, the project proposers also provide information on how impact will be achieved.
In addition to the calls, BONUS supports (on progamme-level) cooperation actions such as workshops, conferences, training courses, synthesis work as well as dissemination and specific stakeholder events. These activities will be implemented either directly by the BONUS Secretariat or through dedicated assignments selected in open competition.
The next review of the BONUS strategic research agenda on which all the BONUS calls are based on is taking place in 2013 through a transparent and flexible process that will involve key stakeholders and take into account future knowledge demands. Contact the BONUS Secretariat for more information and to get involved.
