Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION

Abstract

This is a brochure for the BONUS project. Funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), BONUS aimed to create a forum for joint oversight of national or international research programmes through the pooling of resources and the coherent planning of projects to complement policy developments. BONUS brought together all of the key research funding organisations. It adopted the key principles of both the Commission and the European Social Fund (ESF) strategy documents. It sought to create conditions for joint Baltic Sea research programmes which should substantially improve the effectiveness of environmental and sustainable development policies for the entire region.

The project is divided into four Work package (WP)s. The first WP examines ongoing research funding mechanisms, and the way that results were disseminated, while the second one brought about greater cooperation and collaboration between national programmes. Furthermore, in WP3 an action plan for joint activities was produced and finally the last WP completed the transition to joint research funding in the Baltic Sea.
