In today’s fast-paced advertising industry, there is a constant need to stay up to date with the latest trends, insights and technologies available to communications professionals across the globe. One of edcom’s goals for 2017-2019 is to find ways to enable academics and universities to work more closely together with the industry. The results of a closer relationship manifest themselves in continuous professional development and training for academics, and a better understanding of university processes for industry professionals.
This initiative offers edcom members the opportunity to attend key industry events and conferences across Europe to learn about the latest developments, strengthen networks and share their passion and knowledge with the next generation.
This initiative is only available to edcom members.
