The BONUS project (Baltic Sea marine research funding organisation) is a very important means of grouping national and regional research programmes to support sustainable development in the Baltic Sea region, with a view to coordinating, developing and implementing them by means of joint cooperation activities. Consequently Lithuania and the other Baltic states strongly support the transition from BONUS ERA-NET+ to BONUS-169.
Could the Commission state what new measures are envisaged for BONUS-169? Will the proposal be presented during the present Commission’s term of office? Is there anything that might hinder the transition to BONUS-169?
