Research plan update

Date recorded:

Alan Teixeira presented the IASB staff’s proposal for enhancing the research capacity at the IASB.

The Agenda paper prepared of this session offers a summary of the main proposals.

Specific outward facing proposals include:
  • Creation of a research page on the IASB’s website that gathers together information about the IASB and its activities that would be of interest to researchers and academics.
  • Creation of a subscriber base for email alerts that would inform subscribers about matters of interest to researchers concerned with IFRSs.
  • Holding research activities such as symposiums or conferences on an ad hoc basis.
  • Identifying a network of academics and national standard-setters who are able to provide English translations of foreign-language research.
  • Maintaining a list of issues on which the IASB believes it would benefit from research.
  • Establishing a Research Fellowship programme, aimed at academics on sabbatical leave and other research professionals on secondment from their primary organisation.
