Following the launch of the Seal of Excellence initiative in October 2015 (, the Commission has decided, as a pilot action, to award the ‘Seal of Excellence’ certificate to all proposals submitted to the Horizon 2020 SME instrument evaluated above the quality threshold but not funded under the specific Horizon 2020 call budget, including those submitted before the launch of the initiative.

Our proposal on surgiQ business plan passed all evaluation thresholds, and has been awarded the Horizon 2020 Seal of Excellence.

As stated in the certificate, our surgiQ proposal,

following evaluation by an international panel of independent experts was successful in a highly competitive evaluation process as an innovative project proposal.

This proposal is recommended for funding by other sources
