Survey on the communication of the EWI Department and the EWI Review Magazine
On the authority of the EWI Department, the independent research bureau Indigov carried out a study this summer to evaluate and improve the communication of the EWI Department. The results of this survey are currently being processed and analysed. Through the website www.ewi-vlaanderen.be
you can keep abreast of the outcomes and the resulting actions.This survey also led to the EWI Review Magazine of the EWI Department being put on hold for a while. Subscribers to the magazine have probably noticed that no new edition was published in May. This will not be the case in September either. We keep the subscribers and stakeholders informed about the future plans for the magazine.
