Competitive calls 2012-2017

BONUS launches calls that fund projects which address the objectives of the BONUS strategic research agenda 2011-2017, update 2014. The calls are targeting multi-partner and transnational projects, encouraging  participation of small and medium-sized enterprises and other end-users. BONUS calls 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.
