Dear reader,

Dear Reader,
I am proud to present to you the 10th edition of
the IC Circular. The on-line version of this journal
can be found here.

This Circular features six articles that focus
mainly on science and technology side of the

The first article talks about international cooperation
and how we can all benefit from it. More
and more international cooperation is talking
place these days, while the partners don’t lose
the eye on their local market.

The second article talks about the determination
of the degree of curing UV printed material
has, once it has been exposed to UV light. This
will have later on application in measuring the
rate of curing of UV inks through an in-line
measurement device.

The third article talks about the challenges of
colour calibrating an inkjet printer that is used
for printing images on frosting sheets used for
cake decoration.

The last article in the science & technology
section talks about the interesting concept of
applying a defined amount of optical brightening
agents onto a proofing media to simulate
the amount of optical brightening agent on a
press sheet.

The Education section features an article that
is the continuation of an article by the same
group of authors that wrote about the skills
gap in cross-media design and production in
the creative industries at the EU level in the 9th
edtion of the Circular.

From this short editorial you can see that the articles
in this edition are quite diverse and there should be
at least one interesting article for each reader.

If you have an article yourself that you would like
to get published please send them to me. I can be
reached via email at You can
write to me in German or English, but your articles
need to be in English.

Interesting developments are in store for the Circular.
The President of the IC will share these developments
with you in one of the upcoming newsletters.

Best regards,
Martin Habekost
