When you write your Master’s thesis or publish other kinds of academic papers, we kindly ask you to acknowledge InnoEnergy as well as the university at which you studied or completed your research. Given the unique nature of the InnoEnergy Master’s School, this is not always straightforward. We have therefore written this short guide to help you.
Acknowledging InnoEnergy in your Master’s thesis
The acknowledgement of InnoEnergy should include the following text on a single page at the end of your thesis or (if applicable) in the acknowledgement section of the thesis.
This thesis is based on work conducted on the Master’s in [FULL NAME OF PROGRAMME] programme as part of the InnoEnergy Master´s School. The programme is supported financially by InnoEnergy.
If you received a scholarship or fee waiver, the text should be:

This is in addition to the traditional reference to the universities where you studied and/or completed your research.

The following is an example:
