ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif. U.S.A (March 7, 2007)-- EDSF, the international, non-profit organization dedicated to the document management and communications industries, announced today that four university teams will receive its annual Academic Research Grant. The grant recipients represent universities in the US, Canada, China and Germany. Each of the research teams and their mentors will undertake a document-related topic of interest, conduct the research, complete the analyses, and provide a completed research report which will be made available by EDSF as a free download at www.edsf.org. In addition to providing the research grant to conduct the study, the EDSF program has two unique aspects: student involvement and EDSF mentors.
