Commission awards Seal of Excellence for the EU Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change

6 project proposals receive the quality label Seal of Excellence for submission under Horizon Europe call ‘Testing and demonstrating transformative solutions on climate resilience, mainstreaming nature-based solutions in the systemic transformation’ (HORIZON-MISS-2022-CLIMA-01-06). These proposals were evaluated and judged as being excellent but could not be funded due to lack of available budget.

The aim of the project proposals is to develop and test innovative solutions, combining technological and social innovation, leading to an increase of the resilience and adaptation capacity to climate change of their territories.

The objective of the Mission Adaptation to Climate Change is to mobilise all actors, such as EU Member States, regional and local authorities, research institutes, industry, investors and citizens to accelerate the transformation to a climate-resilient Europe.

The European Commission encourages all involved national, regional and local authorities to take full advantage of the high-quality Horizon Europe evaluation and support their respective partners in these projects in the pursuit of alternative funding sources.
