EUR 17 million for research seeking solutions to sustain the Baltic Sea ecosystem healthy and productive

Eight research projects worth a total of EUR 17,3 million funded by BONUS start their implementation this month. They will seek solutions as part of efforts to sustain the Baltic Sea ecosystem healthy while providing goods and services upon which the 85 million inhabitants living in the Baltic Sea catchment largely turn to for sea-dependent lifestyle and wellbeing.

 “Since its inception in 2007, BONUS has built a unique, macroregional collaboration of research and innovation funding institutions. We invite top consortia of researchers and innovators to make project proposals which foster resilience of the Baltic Sea ecosystem. The best ideas with highest foreseen impact get funding”, says Kaisa Kononen, Executive Director, BONUS Secretariat.
