The Chair of the Independent BONUS Interim Evaluation Panel, Professor Peter R. Burbridge, noted in the foreword of the Evaluation report:  “Overall, the Evaluation Panel is very impressed by BONUS’s achievements founded upon the development of transnational and trans-disciplinary cooperation, of human and institutional capacities, of information shar­ing and the trust in the integrity of all actors within the management of successive phases of the programme. The Evaluation Panel is confident that there will be further major advances in policies and management actions to enhance the sustainable use of the Baltic Sea ecosystem resulting from the outcomes of BONUS that would not have been achieved without this integrated approach.”
