We have been awarded with Seal of Excellence

The European Commission has recently awarded VIO Chemicals with the Seal of Excellence, a high-quality label for first-class innovation ideas worthy of investment. With this award the European Commission recognizes VIO Chemicals as a highly innovative enterprise with clear potential to compete internationally in high-growth markets. 

“For us at VIO Chemicals, it is an honour to have our efforts recognized. The recognition is more fulfilling as it comes by an international panel of independent experts in a highly competitive evaluation process in terms of excellence, impact, quality and efficiency of implementation” commented VIO Chemicals CEO and founder, Dimitris Kalias. “We are very proud that our project scored highly against nearly 3,000 applicants and this award reinforces our commitment to integrating innovation as a value and approach in all of our work”.

The Seal of Excellence is the Certificate of high quality awarded to projects submitted to Horizon 2020 Programme, which have passed all the stringent selection and award criteria but could not get funded due to Horizon 2020 budget limits. The “Seal” identifies the business value of the VIO Chemicals proposal and merits funding from alternative sources, public, private, national, regional European or international.
