Mention of the fact that ID UJ is a source of financing should be made on every occasion, whether that be in publications, in presentations on financed activities, etc.

The grants and the publications should be affiliated with the UJ.
After completing the expenditure of the planned funds, we ask for information, and after completing all the task in the grant (e.g., submitting the publication / grant proposal), applicants are required to submit the final report.
