Corporate Identity

The staff of the Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (IGFAE) must comply in all their communications and activities with the publicity requirements set by the funding institutions. The aim of this page is to summarise these and other regulations:

CIGUS Network: the IGFAE is one of the eight centres that form part of the Network of Research Centres of the Galician University System (CIGUS Network). This recognition, granted by the Xunta de Galicia, accredits the quality and impact of the research carried out by these centres.

EU and European Funds: in the same way, the new EU and European Funds financing programme for the period 2021-2027 entails a new visual identity that must be complied with in all communications linked to IGFAE activity.

Other funding programmes: in addition to these instructions, which must be complied with in all cases, IGFAE staff must accredit the other sources of funding they receive for their research (e.g. European Research Council, State Research Agency, Oportunius programme, etc.).

In case of any doubt or query about these instructions, please contact the Management and Communication Unit:
