Get new impulses, refresh knowledge, and keep up with the times: That is the aim of the REFRESH 2022 of the Communication Management Department at the Institute of Communication and Media Studies at the University of Leipzig. This year, the one-day event will take place on Friday, 22 April 2022.

Anyone who is active in corporate and organizational communication experiences new challenges every day. Hardly any other profession changes so quickly and dynamically. The state of international research in the subject area develops just as quickly. Every year, the event offers a platform for exchange between alumni who work in practice as communication managers and the leading academic think tank in the field.  New impulses are provided by compactly communicated and current practice-relevant study results on strategic communication.

This year's topics include the challenges posed by deep fakes, CommTech from the perspective of companies, consultants and service providers, financial communication for the young "share generation" and business models for communication departments. The event will be held in German. More information can be found in the conference programme:
