Policy framework analysis to be launched at the HELCOM-BONUS stakeholder conference

Register now and come along on Monday, 4 March 2013 at Marina Congress Centre, Katajannokka Helsinki to learn more about the landscape of the relevant policies supporting the sustainable development in the Baltic Sea region.

The BONUS Secretariat has compiled an update of the current policy landscape that will help in defining the actual research themes to be included in the future BONUS calls for competitive scientific and innovation macroregional projects. The study has identified more than 80 policy documents and initiatives of global, European and Baltic Sea regional levels that are considered to varying degrees relevant to the comprehensive research programme of BONUS.

During the afternoon workshop session, participants will be also discussing issues of critical importance and considering responses to the following questions:

  • How to combine innovation and research - how can innovation help in achieving sustainability in the Baltic Sea region?
  • How to address the linkages between human pressures and impacts with the view to achieve a healthy marine ecosystem?
  • From a socio-economic perspective, how to make sustainable use of ecosystem services more effective?

Reserve your place and use the  free exhibition opportunity available for conference participants! Registration remains open until the end of Friday, 15 February 2013.
