We are thrilled to announce that Klearia, has been honored with the prestigious Seal of Excellence by the European Commission. This remarkable recognition underscores Klearia's unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation, and dedication in our pioneering developments in the field.
The Seal of Excellence is a distinguished quality label introduced during Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation framework program from 2014 to 2020. It serves as a symbol of recognition for project proposals that display exceptional merit. These proposals were submitted under a Horizon Europe call for proposals and met predefined quality thresholds but were not funded due to budget constraints. The Seal of Excellence certificate not only acknowledges the value of these proposals but also encourages other funding organizations to recognize and support the high-quality projects that undergo the rigorous Horizon Europe evaluation process.
This certificate is unique and secure, digitally sealed to prevent fraud, much like the groundbreaking projects we at Klearia endeavor to create. The award of the Seal of Excellence to Klearia represents a significant milestone for our company, as it demonstrates our unwavering dedication to the pursuit of innovation and cutting-edge technology.
Under Horizon Europe (2021-2027), there are plans to enhance the quality and support for the implementation of the Seal of Excellence. This further promotes its utilization in Structural Funds programs, reinforcing the synergy between research and innovation framework programs and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The guidance document titled 'Notice on synergies between ERDF programs and Horizon Europe' is one example of the effort to strengthen these synergies.
Klearia's journey is a testament to the spirit of innovation and research. Our commitment to developing groundbreaking laboratory technology is not only recognized by the European Commission but is also poised to transform the landscape of laboratory research. With a focus on democratizing laboratory-on-a-chip technology, Klearia is paving the way for R&D and analytical laboratories to benefit from the advancements of the future.
In conclusion, Klearia's receipt of the Seal of Excellence is a remarkable achievement, highlighting our dedication to advancing the field of laboratory technology. As we continue our mission to make laboratory-on-a-chip technology accessible to all, this recognition from the European Commission serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation.
