BONUS history

The continuous development of the 'BONUS approach' over time can be traced back to the early 2000s. The current BONUS programme (Article 185 funded for years 2011-2017) is built on BONUS+ and BONUS ERA-NET:

BONUS+ (2009-2011) tested the mechanisms of collaboration among the national funding institutions with a total of 16 projects funded for EUR 22 million and involved over 100 research institutes and universities in the implementation of these projects
