In a move that reflects a current direction in standard-setting, the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has established an academic panel in order to strengthen its relationship with the academic community’s thought leaders on financial reporting and to ensure that solutions to financial reporting issues are developed on a firm foundation of evidence.

Given EFRAG's European role, the composition of the advisory panel is pan-European and brings together eminent researchers from Austria, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

In Australia, the AASB also set up an academic advisory panel and held a very successful first research forum in November 2016. The IASB does not have an academic advisory panel but has already held three research forums, the last one in October 2016. And the French ANC has established a series of symposiums on accounting research where the 6th one took place in December 2016.

For more information on the new EFRAG Academic Panel please see the press release on the EFRAG website.
