The institution that manages Horizon 2020, the European Union framework program for research and innovation 2014-2020, has issued the “Seal of Excellence” to PNR Italia for the project “Optimization, testing in the operational environment and approval for the use of the RRZ nozzle in motorway tunnels as an active fire extinguishing system. ”
The seal of excellence is a quality mark awarded by the Commission to proposals that have been positively assessed and deemed compliant with the quality requirements of this Union instrument but could not be financed due to budgetary constraints. These projects are believed to deserve funding and could receive support from other Union or national funding sources.
The Seal of Excellence certificate recognizes the proposal’s value and helps other funding agencies to benefit from the high-quality commission evaluation process.
