Four different conferences on technical communication covered all the geographic regions of Europe in May and June 2016. Experts and professionals came together in Bologna, Copenhagen, Sofia and Utrecht to discuss the latest industry trends.
The Blue Guide of the European Commission is the guideline for implementation of all directives and regulations for CE marking. In this revision of the 2000 version, it goes further into the obligations of economic operators in detail and, along with this, into instructions.
tekom is currently developing an academic competence framework for technical communication together with professors in an international consortium. In the programme Erasmus+, which is funded by the EU, contents for academic teaching in the field of technical communication are being developed in our project, "TecCOMFrame".
As part of the TecCOMFrame consortium, Daniela Straub (tekom Germany) presented the Erasmus+ project to members of the CIUTI General Assembly 2016 in Trieste. The TecCOMFrame project is of high relevance for the academic training of translators.
