STOP PRESS – new timing of the BONUS call in support of the Baltic Sea research

The first BONUS thematic call to open in 2012

The joint Baltic Sea research and development programme BONUS will open a call for proposals in the first half of 2012 worth EUR 40 million to support the top Baltic Sea research and the pivotal role it can play in ensuring a better future for the region.  The successful top science projects to be funded will be selected by a panel of international experts and the results will be announced by the end of 2012.

By postponing the opening of this call from the originally planned 1 December 2011 to the first half of 2012 allows the funding volume of up to EUR 40 million to be fully secured legally for mobilisation. Half of the funding comes from the national funding institutions of the Baltic Sea countries and the other half from the EU Seventh Framework Programme. The timing of this first call under the BONUS 2010-2016 will be confirmed in due time. For further updates, subscribe to the BONUS e-Bulletin  and visit the BONUS website www.bonusportal.org.

All information necessary for the applicants, including the call fact sheet and the applicant guidelines, will be made available on the BONUS website latest by the time of the call www.bonusportal.org/call2012.

The call will be based on the BONUS strategic research agenda which is downloadable from www.bonusportal.org/sra.
