How to acknowledge ELIXIR funding and support

If your work has received financial support (e.g. grant funding, event sponsorship) or other support (e.g. in-kind contribution) linked to ELIXIR, you need to visibly acknowledge ELIXIR’s contribution so it can be tracked and reported.

In written work, you may use the following statements:

  • This work was funded by ELIXIR, the research infrastructure for life-science data. [as written]
  • This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 871075 (ELIXIR-CONVERGE). [adapt depending on the grant, in consultation with the project manager and official guidance from the European Commission]

If the above is not practical, note that the following terms are also monitored by the ELIXIR Hub via text-mining (of Europe PMC). Hence, publications/preprints using them will likely be identified:

  • ELIXIR Commissioned Service
  • ELIXIR Implementation Study [and plural form]
  • ELIXIR Travel Grant, ELIXIR Staff Exchange 
  • funded/supported by ELIXIR
  • (has received) funding from ELIXIR
  • ELIXIR BioHackathon Europe
  • Names and agreement numbers of European Union grants in which the ELIXIR Hub is a beneficiary

You can access early visualisations of this effort (work in progress).
