Q: What are the rules governing the use of Framework Programme logos?
Framework Programme logos may be used by third parties provided this is not:
likely to imply that the user is acting on behalf of the Commission when they are not;
linked to aims or activities incompatible with the
principles and objectives of the European Union.
In the case of EU-funded projects:
- logos that are developed for projects funded by the EU, may not be identical or similar to the FP logos;
- contractors are not required to obtain prior permission from the Commission to use the relevant FP logo, but are subject to the general third-party-use restrictions mentioned above. This tacit authorization to use the logo implies no right of exclusive use. It does not permit the appropriation of the logo, or of any similar trade mark or logo, whether by registration or by any other means.
