The 'Research Informing the IASB Decision Process programme' of the International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER) has awarded grants to academics from Canada, Sweden, the UK, and the USA to conduct research that will be relevant to the IASB's work.

The researchers will present their findings to the Program Advisory Committee, the Board and its technical staff in three deliverables. The first round of presentations will take place in December 2020.
