The NUAS Communication Conference (NUASkom)

The NUAS Communication Conference (NUASkom) is a network conference with the premise that there should be extensive dialogue and room for discussions and exchange of experience. At our last conference, about 20 per cent of the participants contributed to the programme, and approximately 30 per cent of the participants had previously attended.

The conference targets communication staff at universities in the Nordic countries and the participants come from all over Scandinavia. The conference covers many different aspects, such as internal communication, research communications, digital and social media, recruitment of students, crisis communication, media relations, branding etc.

The conference is mainly held in English in order to accommodate Icelandic and Finnish conference participants and any other participants who might not understand or speak Scandinavian. Some presentations may also be held in Scandinavian, but at those times there will be alternative sessions in English.

There is no specific theme for the conference, as our main objective is to present good cases that can serve as examples and food for thought.

The conference usually takes place every 18 months and we alternate between different countries and capitals/regions. The most recent conferences were held in Uppsala, Reykjavik, Tromsø, Helsinki, Aarhus and Stockholm.

We expect up to 300 participants. The conference takes place on 18-20 June 2017 at the University of Bergen, in Bergen, Norway.
