Dear readers,

tekom launches Belgian branch
Connecting technical writers from Europe and abroad has always been an utmost concern for tekom and tcworld. With some fifteen regional branches and four “Country Groups” across Europe, tekom is continuously expanding its international network and enabling a dialogue among professionals from the field of information development.

Today, tekom is proud to announce the foundation of a new Country Group: tekom Belgium will be formally launched during a foundation event on April 18, 2013 at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Leuven in Antwerp. The event is free of charge and open to all tekom members as well as other interested persons.

The Subfaculty of Language and Communication – one of the co-founders of the tekom Belgium branch – will become tekom’s first academic partner. The partnership will enable the Subfaculty to include technical communication into its curriculum and to integrate new teaching and research topics. Read more…
