Anne-Marie and Gustaf Anders Foundation for Media Research increases its support to CTF, Service Research Center at Karlstad University. During the next three years five international visiting professors will be linked to the CTF research group financed by the foundation.
CTF will receive the financial support to fund the following top professors: Stephen Vargo, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Joann Peck, University of Wisconsin, Martin Schreier, University of Vienna, Satoshi Fujii, Kyoto University, and Johanna Gummerus, Hanken School of Economics.
"Our visiting professors contribute with an international perspective and knowledge from the absolute front within their respective fields of research. Their knowledge of methods, theoretical frameworks and their contacts benefit our researchers and doctoral students and have great deal of input in their research. We are very pleased to receive the support of the Ander Foundation, which enables us to further consolidate our position at the forefront of the international research front," says professor Per Kristensson, director of CTF.
The professorship is funded by Anne-Marie and Gustaf Ander Foundation for Media Research, which provide grants to cover the cost of a visiting professor at CTF for a month during three years.
