BONUS is an EU 6th Framework Programme ERA-NET project with a total funding of 3.03 million euros for years 2004-2007. The project brings together the key research funding organisations in all EU Member States around the Baltic Sea.
The aim is to form a network and partnership of key agencies funding research with the aim to deepen the understanding of conditions for science-based management of environmental issues in the Baltic Sea. BONUS operates in close connection with the scientific and management actors.
Objectives and operational goals of the project include planning and launching of a common research programme, opening a BONUS Internet portal serving as a networking tool and a gateway to the information on the Baltic Sea science, facilitating shared use of marine research infrastructure and improving complementarity of postgraduate training in marine sciences.
