BONUS+ Call in 2007

Basic Information

Network BONUS+
Aim of the joint call The research should focus on supporting an ecosystem based approach to management of human activities. 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. It should also reveal 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.
