BONUS EEIG - representing altogether 10 RTD organisations in the Baltic Sea states (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russian Federation, and Sweden) opens a call for multilateral research projects within the framework of the BONUS-169 Science Plan. Total amount of funding by BONUS for this call is 27.3 M€.The research should focus on introducing ecosystem approach to management. It should enhance our understanding and predictive capacity about the Baltic Sea ecosystem’s response to impending changes caused by both naturally and human induced pressures and about linkages between environmental problems and the social and economic dynamics in responding to them. In turn, the research should support formation of the basis for prudent management aimed at safeguarding the sustainable use of the ecosystem’s goods and services. Funding is to be provided for transnational, collaborative projects based on division of work with a high degree of scientific excellence as well as sharing of resources and data. A minimum of two BONUS partner countries is required. Partners from other European Community States and third parties are welcome to join the consortia when expertise or facilities, not existing or scarce in the Baltic Sea States, are brought into the project. The duration of the prjects should be three years.The dead-line for submission of proposals is 3.12.2007.
