Many congratulations to Anne who has secured funding from the EU for a major study into the evolution of reading in a digital age. The project involves partners from several EU countries, and also includes network member Matt Hayler who is on the Management Committee.
The main objective of the Action proposal is to develop, on the basis of an integrative model of reading, an aggregate measure of reading on paper and screens. The model and measure will improve scientific understanding of the implications of digitization and help individuals, disciplines, societies and sectors across Europe to cope optimally with the effects, and consolidate E-READ as a hallmark European research initiative across scientific, disciplinary and national boundaries.
