"Het instituut staat bekend."

Marked incorrect. Is it actually incorrect? Is "is" the only acceptable verb here? Staat is listed on hover as well.

It is incorrect. If you use "staat bekend" you have to use "staat bekend om". Then it is "known for" You can only say it when the sentence is longer and it is known for something.
