Layman's description

What does an EliteForsk travel grant mean for your future opportunities?
My ambition is to travel to Asia for e.g. to observe how South Korean companies live up to new transparency requirements regarding the probability of different types of winnings from loot boxes. I will also travel to the Netherlands to investigate whether the legal requirement stemming from the EU's consumer legislation is met, which requires game manufacturers to display prices for in-game purchases in euros and not fictitious currencies (for example, green gems). Finally, I take a closer look at the UK's attempts to influence the gaming industry to self-regulate the industry. The overall experience can have an impact on legislation in the area in Denmark and other EU countries.
