SAVE THE DATE – celebrating 10 years of BONUS on 3-4 May 2017, Helsinki

Events scheduled for two days of May will mark the 10 years of BONUS since its inception in spring 2007:

The events of the first day will commence on the fortress island of Suomenlinna located in front of Helsinki. The programme will feature both joint and break-out sessions including a kick-off for the new ‘BONUS call 2015: Blue Baltic’ projects. Among the participants will be members of our community ranging from the BONUS Steering Committee, Advisory Board and Project Coordinators Forum, to the wider researchers community, industry, end-users and other stakeholders. 

In the evening of Wednesday, 3 May 2017, we will celebrate the evolution of Baltic Sea science from ‘marine science, fisheries science and oceanography’ to truly interdisciplinary, targeted, problem oriented research and innovation effort. Both a jubilee evening school and a celebratory dinner will take place at the helm of an old harbour building in the centre of Helsinki, Katajanokka Wanha Satama.  Here we will also convene for a concluding plenary on the following day, with messages from the previous day’s events brought to the floor.

SAVE THE DATE in your calendars and a more defined plan will follow in the New Year.

We look forward to celebrating the first 10 years of BONUS together with you!
