The International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER) is inviting research proposals for the seventh round of the IAAER KPMG Research Grant “Informing the IASB Standard Setting Process”.

This is a great opportunity for impactful research at the heart of the standard setting process, for the ultimate benefit of ICAS members and the profession, and to serve the public interest.”
