ECCSEL ERIC Logo and Communication Guidelines

These communication guidelines provide a framework for using the ECCSEL logo and branding in dissemination and communication actions involving ECCSEL ERIC or ECCSEL facilities. This may include conference presentations arising from work where ECCSEL is a partner, or resulting from ECCSEL-funded Transnational Access.

First mention of ‘ECCSEL ERIC’

When mentioning ECCSEL ERIC for the first time, please use this wording:

ECCSEL is the European research infrastructure for CCUS.

When an ECCSEL facility is used –

When an ECCSEL facility is used through and with funding from ECCSELERATE it is obligatory to

  1. include the EU emblem and
  2. include the text "This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 871143".


Using the ECCSEL ERIC logo

We strongly encourage the use of the ECCSEL EIRC logo in written and visual communications where ECCSEL research facilities and institutes have been used to perform research. The ECCSEL ERIC logo can be used in any dissemination material including slide packs, roll-ups, newsletters, posters, and project websites. 

Please ensure that ECCSEL ERIC logos are legible, recognisable and do not sit too close to, or overlap with, other graphical elements.  Please also note the minimum allowable size and surrounding buffer zones (the same for each logo).

ECCSEL ERIC logos should be displayed as shown below and should not be rotated, distorted, re-coloured, or scaled below the minimum size.


Which ECCSEL ERIC logo to use

ECCSEL ERIC main logo displayed (download Zip file with logo in JPG and PNG format)

Wherever possible, the main ECCSEL logo should be used. The main logo always features the tagline.

ECCSEL ERIC logo 2 (without tagline)

ECCSEL ERIC logo 3 (icon logo)

The icon only version is intended for use when size or aspect ratio constraints mean that the main or slim logos will not reproduce well. It should not be used in conjunction with other logo versions or styles on the same page.


When to use the ECCSELERATE logo

In the majority of cases the main ECCSEL ERIC logo will be the most appropriate choice.  Please consider very carefully and/or seek advice from ECCSEL before using the ECCSELERATE logo, which should only be included on ECCSELERATE-funded material, and always in conjunction with the main ECCSEL ERIC logo.
