OCTLIGHT is honoured to have been awarded the Seal of Excellence by the EIC Jury for its EIC Accelerator project proposal on the commercialization of its VCSEL technology to meet the demands for improved eye health diagnostics. The project aims to bring cost-efficient 3D imaging with clinically required axial resolution and a wide field of view into broad market adoption to benefit billions of people with visual impairment. The project would support the final development, upscaling and demonstration with partners to bring this disruptive technology into the hands of eye care professionals.
The Seal of Excellence is a quality label awarded to project proposals submitted by start-ups and SMEs under Horizon Europe that has undergone review by business domain experts. It provides access to EIC Business Acceleration Services, which facilitate funding from other sources. In addition, when a project has been awarded the Seal of Excellence, the evaluation summary report, the proposal and the Certificate itself are fraud-proofed as they are digitally protected.
The Seal of Excellence is a recommendation for the proposal, which did not receive funding due to budget constraints, to receive funding from other sources.
