For KU members

You know of a topic that would be of interest to the media? You are currently revising your online presence? You need help with posters and flyers to promote your event? The Department of Development and Communication is your first point of contact for external and internal communication. We provide support in connection with press work, maintain the KU event database, provide design templates and pictures for publications and keep contents of central web pages of the University up to date. We issue regular updates on what is going on at the KU in our publications, the university magazine “Agora” and the newsletter Report Online as well as the newsletter published by the University Management.
