Using the NIHR Logo
We encourage researchers to acknowledge NIHR programme funding in their outputs and use of the NIHR logotype, where permitted. Research teams can also use their own project logo on outputs.
The NIHR logotype can be used in the output types listed below:
- promotional materials
- research posters
- patient materials
The NIHR logotype cannot be used in publications about research findings, including:
- research reports
- research articles
- research papers
- press releases
It must be placed bottom right or in another appropriate position. It must not be positioned anywhere at the top of the document, as this implies endorsement or ownership by the NIHR.
Note that if you use another NHS organisation logo, you should not use the NIHR logotype, but just use a funding statement on its own.
All logos can be downloaded from this site. The NIHR logotype must never be recreated or altered in any way. Only the original digital graphic files of the NIHR logotype should be used. Any attempt to recreate the logo or alter it in any way will undermine the impact and credibility of the NIHR.
The NIHR logotype files are supplied in colour, in white, and in black. There are three different logo formats for you to download. It is important to use the correct one:
- EPS files are high-resolution and for use in printed items, including posters.
- TIF files can be used in printed items for people who do not have the correct software for EPS files (such as Illustrator and Photoshop).
- GIF files are for use in powerpoint presentations.
- JPG files are for use on websites.
NIHR logotype sizes
On standard size formats, such as A4, A5, DL and others, the NIHR logotype size should be as follows (where X is the height of the NHS logo):
A4: X = 8.5mm
A3: X = 12.5mm
A5 and DL: X = 6mm
We have a defined ‘exclusion zone’ area to be left around the logo, it should always be kept clear. No other graphic or typography should appear within it. This clear space (X) is proportional and is defined as the height of the NHS logo.
