The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has announced the International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER) and KPMG’s call for proposals for the eighth round of their research programme Informing the IASB Standard-setting Process.

Research about the IASB’s future projects on intangible assets and the statement of cash flows is being sought. These projects have been added to the IASB’s future work plan as an outcome from the Third Agenda Consultation, which informed the IASB’s key priorities for the next five years. Proposals relating to any project on the IASB’s work plan or research project pipeline are also welcome.

The IAAER-KPMG research programme promotes and supports research directed at developing theory and evidence to inform the IASB’s decision process for any current agenda item.

The submission deadline for proposals is 28 February 2023; read more details about submitting a proposal here.
