Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa Memorial Lecture and IFRS Research Forum
The Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa Memorial Lecture and IFRS Research Forum is an international event designed to encourage thinking and research relevant to the activities of the IFRS Foundation.
The Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa Memorial Lecture will be inaugurated in 2014 by the IFRS Foundation and the Padoa-Schioppa family in honour of the late Mr Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa, a former Minister of Economy and Finance in Italy, a long-time member of the European Central Bank executive board, and former president of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. He is also widely considered to be a founding father of the European single currency. Padoa-Schioppa was a firm believer in the benefits of and the need for a single global financial reporting language in international financial markets in particular in his role as Chairman of the IFRS Foundation Trustees.
In line with his belief in the necessity of IFRS and their importance for the healthy functioning of international capital markets, the Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa Memorial Lecture aims to support thinking that focuses on the interaction between financial reporting requirements and public policy or that contributes to advance an understanding of the interaction between financial markets’ performance and International Financial Reporting requirements.
The IFRS Research Forum offers a unique interdisciplinary platform for academics from around the world to exchange their views with peers and with members of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the body that is responsible for the creation of IFRSs, on topics that address the interaction between international financial reporting requirements, policy and the functioning of capital markets.
Topics and workshop contributions will typically focus on areas in financial reporting that are already on the IASB’s research agenda for consideration or that have been brought to the IASB’s attention by stakeholders as areas that the IASB should consider addressing or research that focuses on issues related to the implementation of IFRS.
Participants will have a unique opportunity to discuss their research with academic peers and with members of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the body responsible for the creation of IFRS, and other practitioners from a regulatory and policy background.
