This project centers around developing an alternative to the established but outdated paradigm of document management. In recent research, an innovative modular approach to document management was established that enables the design of content-agnostic and evolvable documents. This new approach imagines documents as multidimensional and ever-changing entities instead of
mere static representation of their analogue predecessors. The approach is based on theoretical insights of modularity and Normalized Systems (NS) theory. Based on case study research, this project establishes a clear definition of the market for evolvable documents. Furthermore, pilot applications are developed in collaboration with organizations to determine the obstacles, requirements, advantages and economic incentives for evolvable document solutions. Based on these outcomes, commercial solutions will be built in follow-up project(s).
