Project communications

Communication is an important activity for all IMI projects, a fact that is recognised in the legislation creating IMI and the model Grant Agreements for both IMI1 and IMI2 projects.

We have created a simple guide which sets out the rules that all IMI projects should follow when preparing communication products, as well as information on how IMI can help you to promote you project.

Compulsory elements in all IMI project communications and dissemination

As set out in the Grant Agreements for both IMI1 and IMI2, all communication and dissemination activities and products on IMI projects (articles, project websites, presentations, flyers, press releases, social media, videos etc.) must include all of the following elements:

  • A formal acknowledgement of IMI’s support
  • You must use the wording set out in the Grant Agreement; this is also described in the IMI Project Communications Guide 
  • A link to the IMI website – www.imi.europa.eu 
  • IMI, EU, EFPIA, Associated Partner logos
    Download the IMI logo in different versions and formats
    Download the EFPIA logo in different versions and formats
    Download the EU flag in different versions and formats
  • A disclaimer

More information on all of these elements can be found in the IMI Project Communications Guide .

How we can help you – using IMI to promote your project

We are always keen to promote IMI projects’ successes and activities, so please inform us of your news and plans. We communicate our projects across all of our communication channels, include the website, newsletter, social media, events, etc.

More information on this can be found in the IMI Project Communications Guide 

Communication advice and resources from the European Commission

The European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Participant Portal also offers extensive guidance on communicating about projects, including how to create a communication strategy and the use of social media. It also includes best practice case studies.
