The BONUS call 2012: Viable ecosystem

BONUS Steering Committee confirms the outcome of the independent evaluation

Next BONUS funded projects will be announced in late 2013

The BONUS Steering Committee represented by the national funding institutions from the BONUS member states of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden confirmed yesterday in its meeting the outcome of the evaluation of the viable ecosystem part of the BONUS call 2012. This result is currently being communicated to the applicants.

The independent expert evaluators completed their work in late April and ranked the 85 proposals submitted to the BONUS call 2012: Viable ecosystem according to one common ranking list which will be the basis for the funding decision.

The top-ranked proposals that were favourably evaluated against the criteria published for the call will now proceed to negotiations on conditions of the grant agreement with the BONUS EEIG and the respective national funding institutions.

At the completion of the negotiations in autumn 2013, the final set of the projects will be offered their respective funding shares from the available maximum pot of EUR 31 million. Once launched, the first ‘Viable ecosystem’ projects will be commencing their implementation in late 2013 and early 2014.

The independent evaluation of the Innovation part of the BONUS call 2012 is in progress, and similarly, its outcome will be confirmed by the BONUS Steering Committee next month.

The next BONUS call (the BONUS call 2013) is scheduled to be announced later in the autumn.
