ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

As we move into an increasingly innovation-driven, knowledge-based economy, research is a key driver of growth for the global accountancy profession.

ACCA has a long history in supporting academic research that further promotes and enhances the profession’s role and reputation as a vital and value adding component of the business environment, by working closely with academia and business to develop new thinking on accountancy and business issues.

Through ACCA’s charitable trust, The Certified Accountants Educational Trust (CAET), and Research and Insights programme we have funded high quality accounting and finance academic research and events.


ACCA’s global Research and Insights programme provides leading-edge thinking, analysis, practical recommendations and tools for the profession and wider business. We engage with public, private and third sectors, including small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

ACCA plays a key role in building the global accountancy profession by working with academics from leading universities around the world, and many other bodies at international, regional and local levels


Researchers are invited to submit proposals about three areas of integrated reporting (<IR>) that need to be developed further, following the introduction of the <IR> Framework in December 2013. Closes 28 February 2014. Please download the PDF in related documents for further information.
