OPT/NET receives the Seal of Excellence

The OPT/NET team is proud to have been recognised by the European Commission as a first-class innovator! Our first H2020 EIC Accelerator (Horizon 2020: the EU’s research and innovation funding programme) proposal was deemed worthy of investment, however budget limits ultimately prevented us from being funded at this stage. As such, we have been awarded the Seal of Excellence, which recognises the value of the proposal and helps other funding bodies take advantage of the extremely stringent Horizon 2020 evaluation process.

About the Seal of Excellence

The Seal of Excellence is a quality label awarded to project proposals submitted to Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation funding programme, to help these proposals find alternative funding. The Seal of Excellence gives indicates basic information on the proposal, the call and the proposer. It shows political commitment by displaying the signatures of the Commissioners. It is unique and safe. It is digitally sealed against fraud, as is the project proposal and evaluation summary report.
