Research and educational center Typeflow
In 2019 in Rijeka, Croatia, a small group of enthusiasts concerned with the history and future of printing established a research and educational association under the name Typeflow (Research and Educational Center Typeflow). Inspired by the glagolitic printing project undertaken by the bishop Šimun Benja Kožičić in 1530 and 1531 in Rijeka, Association is promoting the role of printing in history and contemporary society, primarily among school age children and young adults.
When fully completed the premises will contain a number of historic printing machines, tools and devices, as well as most recent SLA 3D printing equipment with the aim to organize workshops and demonstrations for children, young adults and general public. A number of other printing related activities will be held together with a yearly research conference where the most prominent scientists in the glagolitic field will present their latest research results.
The long term aim is to create a vibrant printing interpretation centre.
We are situated in the Sugar Refinery Palace (now Municipal Museum) the largest Neo-Baroque building on the east coast of the Adriatic.
