Research Grants


IAAER administered three major research programs to inform the following standard-setting bodies:  International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB), and International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB).  The Association also supports research opportunities for early-stage accounting researchers.

Informing the IAASB Standard-Setting Process Program

The International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER) and The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) are pleased to invite research proposals under the Informing the IAASB Standard-Setting Process Program. The program supports research directed at informing the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board’s (IAASB) decision process in relation to future topics to be addressed. Funding for this program has been provided by The Institute of Charted Accountants of Scotland.

The IAAER is delighted to announce a new global call for research to gather independent evidence to inform the IAASB’s crucial standard setting process: IAAER Press Release.

ICAS provides funding for policy relevant research and is therefore providing the funding for this program. Up to four research grants of £20,000 each will be awarded under this program.

IAAER/ACCA/IIRC Research to support the further development of Integrated Reporting (<IR>)

This call for research proposals is intended to stimulate fresh research into issues at the heart of the further development of <IR>. Subjects for research include an analysis of users’ information needs, the relationship between materiality, completeness and conciseness in reporting, and the impact of factors such as organisation size, ownership structure and source of financial capital on the supply and demand for integrated reports.

Funding for this program is provided by ACCA as part of its ongoing funding for international accounting research, and its support for the work of both IAAER and IIRC. A combined sum of up to GB£50,000 will be awarded for research projects pertaining to the areas specified below. It is anticipated that up to three projects will be funded in total.
