16 Jan, 2017

The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) is launching a call for nominations for its new Academic Panel. Applications are requested by 1 March 2017.

The objective of the Academic Panel, which will support EFRAG’s Technical Expert Group (EFRAG TEG), is to contribute to the debate on current financial reporting and accounting topics by:

  • Assisting in the definition of a clear scope for EFRAG Research projects;
  • Making suggestions on the appropriate methodology;
  • Providing input to EFRAG TEG discussions on the perceived issues and possible solutions (both on IASB and EFRAG Research projects).

The panel is expected to have between 10 to 15 members and is expected to meet in person twice per year.  Members should be academics specialising in accounting and (financial) reporting and notably in IFRS issues and knowledgeable in European specificities.

Full details and terms of reference are available on the EFRAG website.
