Baltic Sea is as unique as work done by BONUS, says EU Commissioner Moedas
“What brings us together is the concern about the Baltic Sea and its future, concern about its environment, its ability to provide good and services, not only for us but also for the future generation”, reflected the host of the Commissioner's visit, Dr Kaisa Kononen, Executive Director, BONUS.
During his visit, Commissioner Moedas heard about the unique, threatened and valuable Baltic Sea as well as about the BONUS programme and how BONUS is monitoring its impact in creating more scientific excellence, collaboration and groundbreaking innovation.
Commissioner Moedas noted water to be one of the key areas in his priorities, and continued that in fact, originally from a small European country of Portugal himself, considers no country that has sea next to it, to be a small country. He commended BONUS for its valuable and impressive work and felt it should be known for what it does and has achieved to date in Europe by large.
