Joint BONUS-HELCOM Conference on Research and Innovation for Sustainability

This conference, joining together the 7th BONUS Forum and the 8th HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan Stakeholder Conference, reinforced and developed the synergies of HELCOM and BONUS in association with key strategic actors in efforts related to environmental policy and sustainable development of the northern European regional seas.

The BONUS-HELCOM stakeholder conference on Tuesday 6 November 2018, held at the Park Inn by Radisson Copenhagen Airport, has foremost utilised the results of the BONUS projects (many of which are now nearing completion) in HELCOM work – and beyond – as well as jointly identify gaps to fill in for the future. The conference offered also a platform to enhance further synergies across the region, Europe and wider.

A broad range of actors and stakeholders were invited to take part in discussions on 6 November 2018: policy makers and other end-users of sound knowledge, regional sea conventions, industries, academia, non-governmental organisations, relevant General Directorates of the European Commission, research and innovation funding institutions, joint programming initiatives, implementing bodies of the EU macro-regional strategies etc.
