A New NAWA Initiative: the Ulam Programme – Seal of Excellence

The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) joins the group of European institutions that recognise the recipients of the Seal of Excellence certificate under Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships.

NAWA is also announcing the Ulam Program – Seal of Excellence. It is the first Polish mechanism to finance scientific projects that has received the Seal of Excellence certificate under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships programme.

The Ulam Programme – Seal of Excellence is open to Polish universities and institutes as well as scientists that applied together for funding under the European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) and whose project proposals were awarded the MSCA Seal of Excellence.

The MSCA Seal of Excellence certifies the high quality of a research project and is awarded to entities that met the MSCA evaluation criteria but could not be funded from the programme’s current budget. The EC encourages the countries that participate in MSCA and other Horizon 2020 Framework Programs calls to help proposals awarded the Seal of Excellence gain funding from other national sources, public or private. Several countries have already implemented this solution for MSCA, including Czechia, Lithuania, and Italy.
