In addition, some of thethemes opened but left unaddressed in the previouscalls may be reopened, depending on funding limits.Financial review• During this period, a total of EUR 33 million wascommitted to the funding of the 20 successful projectsfrom the BONUS call 2012. In addition, EUR 1 millionof costs incurred from the core tasks of implementationof the programme (including running of theBONUS call 2012). From the total funding availableto the BONUS programme, i.e. up to EUR 100 millionwith half generated by the BONUS members andhalf received from the EU for the years 2012-2017, furtherfunds, up to EUR 15 million, are allocated to theBONUS call 2014: Sustainable ecosystem services. Furthermore,according to a tentative plan, a joint researchand innovation call worth up to EUR 35 million mayopen in the second half of 2014.Moving forward, partnerships• BONUS values partnerships and looks forward tocontinuing close collaboration with key partners suchas HELCOM, EUSBSR, BDF, CBSS, BSSC, OSPAR,ICES, JPI, VASAB, and many others that share commongoals on the knowledge based governance of theBaltic and other regional seas in Europe and beyond.BONUS has continued to pioneer in the Baltic Searegion the basic idea behind the EU’s strategic frameworkfor research and innovation funding, Horizon2020, and EU’s initiative of ‘blue growth’ in sustainableway, by launching the BONUS call 2012: Innovationand further themes later in 2014, also dedicated to innovation.BONUS looks forward to also continuing tocollaborate with the relevant macroregional networksof companies, research actors and financiers that haveemerged in particular within the EU Strategy for theBaltic Sea Region.Planning “the next” BONUSBONUS is currently considering its future after theend of 2017, then possibly with the Horizon 2020. As aforward-looking model for other forms of future regionalseas research cooperation with common European value,also broadening of the thematic and/or geographic scopeof the BONUS programme is being examined.14| BONUS review 2012–2013
