CRF European Visiting Research Fellowship

  Visiting research fellow grant, to embed the ebook format (and ecosystem) debate into the scholarly discourse concerning similar cases (e.g. concerning video formats) and particularly their academic reflections (e.g. by Gasser / Palfrey [2012]: Interop). Although it can be expected that this work will yield the conclusion that the matter is more differentiated than it looks from the perspective of an ebook customer or of the manager of a bricks-and-mortar bookstore, making use of the full horizon of the technological standards discourse will potentially strengthen the bookselling infrastructure and cultural diversity aspects in the time to come.
