BONUS Forum to be held in late autumn

The BONUS Forum, established in 2010 by its Kick-off Conference held in Tallinn on 12 October, will continue convening as a permanent stakeholder consultation body. BONUS continues to intensify its links with the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR), and plans to organise the BONUS Forum 2011 in connection with the EUSBSR annual conference and the mutual stakeholder platform in late October/early November in Gdansk, Poland. The Forum will demonstrate outcomes and success stories of the BONUS+ projects that are ending in 2011.

The exact dates for the EUSBSR annual conference and the BONUS Forum 2011 will be announced soon and posted here.  Please note that the Gdansk event will replace the earlier plan for BONUS to convene a final conference for the BONUS+ projects in Gothenburg in December.
