  • The logo may be used by any European organisation or H2020 funded project that is a) committed to supporting the implementation of the EOSC and/or b) is willing to be part of the EOSC ecosystem, and therefore accepts the guidelines provided by the EOSC Executive and Governance Board and the European Commission.
  • The logo can be used by legal entities established in the following countries and territories:
    • The Member States (MS) of the European Union(EU), including their outermost regions;
    • The Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT) linked to the Member States;
    • The associated countries (AC): the latest information on which countries are associated can be found here.
  • The use of the EOSC logo is allowed as long as this use:
    • does not create the impression or assumption that there is a connection between the third-party user and the EOSC Executive and Governance boards or the European Commission, where this connection does not exist;
    • does not lead the public to believe that the user benefits from the support, sponsorship, approval or consent of the EOSC Executive and Governance boards or the European Commission, where this is not the case;
    • is not made in connection with any objective or activity which is incompatible with the aims and principles of EOSC, or is otherwise unlawful.

By using the logo you are accepting the guidelines provided by the EOSC Executive and Governance Board and the European Commission.
  • Please remember that the usage of the logo does not mean that the EOSC Executive and Governance Board and the European Commission support, approve or endorse your work.
