9 million NOK in funding to STREAM-project
The STREAM-project has received more than nine million Norwegian kroner in funding from the Research Council of Norway.
Instead of owning physical media products, more people are subscribing to huge libraries of content. This model of streaming services is getting more common in several media industries, such as the music industry, the TV industry and the book industry.
Centre director of CeRMI, Anders Fagerjord, is also the project leader of the STREAM-project. An advisory board consisting of top international researches is also in on the project, and will be travelling to Oslo each year.
The project will employ one postdoc for three years, and two permanent employees will get some teaching exemption. The funding also covers the implementation of two large surveys on media use.
Every year during the project period, results from the project will be presented in a public seminar for the press and the public, as well as discussions with representatives from various media industries.
