If you are using the HSC R&D Division logo, we recommend that it is positioned bottom right on the front cover, on the inside cover or on the back page. It must not be positioned anywhere at the top of the document, as this implies endorsement or ownership by HSC R&D Division. Only the original digital graphic files of the HSC R&D Division logotype should be used. The logotype must never be recreated or altered in any way.

The logo must be accompanied by a funding statement e.g.

“The [name of project/workshop/conference] is funded/supported by the HSC R&D Division, Public Health Agency’s [name of Award Scheme or Program] & [HSC R&D Award File Reference].”

You can also use a funding statement on its own if you are not using the HSC R&D Division logotype.

It is important that you quote the HSC R&D File Reference for your Award as this helps us track the outputs, outcomes and impacts of HSC R&D Funding.

 

Using a Disclaimer

You must take care, particularly for publications about research findings that you do not imply endorsement or ownership by HSC R&D Division. Publications must not be described as a ‘Report of HSC R&D Division’ without the HSC R&D Division’s prior approval. Award Holders shall not give the impression in any statement, public or otherwise, that they are, on account of the research, advisers or acting in any official capacity for HSC R&D Division. If appropriate a disclaimer should be used after the funding statement (example below)...

"The [name of project/workshop/conference] is funded/supported by HSC R&D Division, Public Health Agency’s [name of Award Scheme or Program] & [HSC R&D Award File Reference]. The content or views expressed are those of the authors/presenters and do not necessarily reflect the official views of the HSC R&D Division."

 

 

Press Releases:

Prior to issuing a press release concerning an Award or the outcome of research funded or supported by HSC R&D Division, please notify the relevant Programme Manager in HSC R&D Division to allow for coordination and HSC R&D Division input.
