European Innovation Counsel - Seal of Excellence implementation in Brussels Capital Region

What is the Seal of Excellence?

The Seal of Excellence is a quality label awarded by the European Commission to proposals which have been assessed in a call for proposals under a Union instrument and are deemed to comply with the quality requirements of that Union instrument but could not be funded. These projects are judged to deserve funding and might receive support from other Union or national sources of funding.

The Seal of Excellence certificate recognises the value of the proposal and helps other funding bodies take advantage of the high quality Commission evaluation process.

The Seal of Excellence certificate indicates basic information on the proposal, the call and the proposer. It demonstrates 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.
