Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap 2022: Looking back

Published on February 17, 2022 – On February 10 and 11, 2022, the annual ‘Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap’ (24 hours of communication science) took place; an important meeting for communication scientists from the Netherlands and Flanders. This year the conference was organized by the Communication Science department from the the Free University of Brussels.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the organization of Etmaal 2022 decided to move to another online edition of the conference, but hopefully in September there will be an opportunity to get together in person as well.

A number of ACHC members gave a research presentation in the health communication division during the conference, offering a good overview of the ongoing ACHC research, both related to COVID-19 and other topics. Below is an overview of the researchers and the title of their Etmaal 2022 presentation.
