Technical Communications

Technical Communications are distributed to members only and describe another line of communication whereby NGVA Europe members have the opportunity to provide technical documents, studies or presentations in order to inform other members of NGVA Europe. This method of making technical information available helps to let our members understand what other members are interested in or working on and becomes especially important when communicating technical input from NGVA Europe Working Groups.

But these communications can also be technical documents considered to be of general interest to the members and are sent by the NGVA Europe staff.
