This event aims to ensure that the strong and transparent dialogue continues between BONUS´s forward-looking, regional research and development programme and the European community.
Charged with common European values, and through the questions of interest, the event will provide examples of how Baltic Sea top science plays a role in key policy processes of relevance also to the Brussels and wider European community.
Q & A panel
A questions and answers panel addressing topics related to the top Baltic Sea research will convene in Brussels on 8 November 2011. The latest knowledge produced by the BONUS+ projects that are ending in 2011 will be at the centre stage. Questions are invited in advance from the European Community. This is an excellent opportunity to ask questions that you would like to get answers to related to the latest Baltic Sea research.
For example, why is it important to conserve the biodiversity in the Baltic Sea? What are the predictions in terms of the sea level, temperature, salinity and oxygen conditions for a 100 years from now? How have we succeeded in untangling the effects of eutrophication and climate change in the Baltic? Will the whole Baltic Sea be dead in year 2020? And many more.
Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4 November 2011 and we will answer them during the event or online. From 24 October 2011 onwards, also breifings from each BONUS+ project will be available on the BONUS website summarising the key results and hopefully enticing futher questions from the EU community.
Also the BONUS thematic call opening in December 2011 will be introduced and the BONUS strategic research agenda for the years 2011-2017 made available for the participants.
Who should attend:
You and those members of the European community who have a stake in efforts that aim to ensure a better future for the Baltic Sea region e.g. members of the European Parliament, staff from the EU Directorate Generals dealing with marine and maritime issues and other actors who work closely with BONUS or other regional research programmes and want to learn more about the latest Baltic Sea research results.
Participants will have an opportunity to:
- ask questions they want about the latest research related to the Baltic Sea region
- gain a good insight into the 16 individual BONUS+ projects through the discussion, posters and briefings
- discuss strategic and practical implications of the Balti Sea research
- obtain information about the future research agenda and activities of BONUS
We look forward to welcoming you to the BONUS seminar in Brussels.
