The joint Baltic Sea Research and Development Programme (BONUS Art. 185, 2010-2020)

BONUS Art. 185 ran in 2010-2020, following its piloting phase and 16 BONUS+ projects implemented in years 2008-2011. BONUS Art. 185 issued five competitive calls and funded 48 projects. It was funded jointly by the national research funding institutions in the eight EU member states around the Baltic Sea and the European Union for a total of EUR 100 million. Russia participated in BONUS through bilateral agreements.

The BONUS programme and its legacy has served as the basis in development of the framework for a joint Baltic and North Sea Research and Innovation Programme (BANOS) prepared in years 2018-2021 in the Baltic and North Sea Coordination and Support Action (BANOS CSA)

Until December 2026 some key BONUS information remains on this web page for ease of access, information and use.
