XRB Research Forum

We are hosting our first virtual research forum on the 11 December 2020 to promote the interaction between accounting and auditing academics and standard-setters.

Our aim is three-fold.  We want to: 

  • update academics on current standard-setting developments and outline related research needs;
  • allow academics to present relevant research and receive feedback; and
  • consider the related implications for accounting education.

Who can attend?

The Forum is open to all academics and PhD students who have an interest in accounting or auditing standards.

There is no cost to attend.
