New developments in practice and research

Julia Müller

A “Technical Communication Day” will be organised at the University of Twente in the Netherlands on the 4th of July.

This event provides an opportunity to: 

  • Learn about the final results of the TecCOMFrame project;
  • Learn about recent research in the area of Technical Communication;
  • Meet other people who are interested in technology and communication;
  • Take a tour through the university’s new DesignLab 

TecCOMFrame project partners invite industry representatives, technical communicators, silent partners of the TecCOMFrame project, researchers, teachers and students and all other interested stakeholders to exchange information, to learn from each other and to strengthen our relations.

The event is for free. We will start at 9:30 and will end after lunch. The final program will be published early June.
