'BONUS call 2017: Synthesis’ is now open

Knowledge synthesis is central for knowledge translation from research community to practice and for ensuring evidence-based decision making. With this in mind, the Article 185 BONUS initiative opens a new call to 'synthesise top research outputs that address the challenges for sustainable use of the Baltic Sea ecosystem services'.

The proposed projects should perform a critical review of research outputs and identify the knowledge gaps and further research needs. Each project funded will be also expected to analyse how successfull the outputs of science have been taken up at different levels of public governance and management, and by industry, and suggest ways to enhance the societal significance and impact of research and innovation relevant to the specific topic.

Topics selected for this call extend across the strategic objectives and themes of the BONUS strategic research agenda, update 2014. They require an interdisciplinary approach and shall therefore be examined from different angles, e.g. natural science, technology, economy, social aspects.

Closing dates: preregistration: 9 October 2017, proposal submission: 9 November 2017.
