EFRAG Academic Panel
The EFRAG Academic Panel was established in 2017 as a response to the increased importance of research activities for the IASB and EFRAG. The Panel consists of 17 academics specialised in financial reporting (including IFRS) and knowledgeable in different aspects and topics specifically relevant to Europe.
The objective of the Panel, which supports EFRAG’s Technical Expert Group (EFRAG TEG) is to contribute to the debate on relevant topics by providing suggestions on:
• relevant research projects;
• the scopes of EFRAG research projects;
• research methodologies;
• research tenders; and
• research papers sponsored or prepared by EFRAG.
The Panel meets physically twice a year and is part of the wider EFRAG Academic Network.
IASB members and staff are also invited to participate as observers as part of the IASB outreach activities.
