Brussels, 20 November 2018 – The Solar Certification Fund (SCF) launched its 10th call for proposals to continue to provide regular and reliable support for (1) developing better and new Solar Thermal certification and standardization processes, (2) ensuring quality assurance for tomorrow’s solar thermal technology.
“The Solar Keymark is a reference in the European market for solar thermal products. As such, it is important that it continues reinvesting in quality assurance, standardization and certification processes by means of the projects supported by the Solar Certification Fund”, mentioned the Chairman of the Solar Keymark Network, Andreas Bohren.
The main priorities of this 10th SCF call are extensive and include:
- The development and improvement of specific tools, processes and methods to improve the existing Keymark Certificate;
- Promotion and quality assurance of solar thermal technology and the Solar Keymark Certification.
- Addressing and resolving new challenges in the sector.
Total available budget for this call is approximately 110 000 €. The indicative budget reflects the priorities provided by the Solar Keymark Network during its 25th meeting on October 23rd –24th, 2018 in advance. The final budget distribution will depend on the relevance and quality of the proposals handed in.
The final allocation will depend on the relevance and quality of the proposals submitted.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Thursday, 20th December 2018, 15h00 CET.
