IASB launches Research Centre

  • IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) Image

Apr 22, 2014

The IASB has announced the launch of a web-based IFRS Research Centre. The Research Centre is designed to facilitate communication between the IASB and the research community. Its main objectives are to (1) increase awareness of the issues that the IASB will be considering in the coming two to three years, (2) to encourage researchers to undertake targeted research projects in these areas, and (3) to support the IASB in moving to more evidence-based standard setting.

The homepage of the Research Centre encourages interaction through four main sections:

  • How you can help contains descriptions of the research issues on which the IASB will be working in the next two to three years and where the IASB is seeking input from the broader research community.
  • Get started lists topics and issues that could be of interest to the academic community and includes links to papers written by IASB staff.
  • Get involved provides information about ways to get involved with the research work of the IASB, including the possibility of joining the organization through its Academic Fellowship program.
  • Stay informed gives access to the IFRS Research Round-Up newsletter. A first issue of the newsletter has been published together with the launch of the Research Centre.

More information is available in the press release on the IASB's Web site.
