European Commission awards Transparency RM the “Seal of Excellence” certificate


The European Commission has decided to award the ‘Seal of Excellence’ certificate to all proposals submitted to the Horizon 2020* SME instrument evaluated above the quality threshold.

This quality label is awarded to project proposals which succeeded in passing all of the stringent selection and award criteria but could not be funded under the available Call budget. The ‘Seal’ identifies project proposals which merit funding from alternative sources public or private, national, regional, European or international.

For 2014-2020, (..) the Seal of Excellence will help identify and support innovative projects and help them grow and compete internationally.” Commissioner Corina Creţu
