We are very happy to announce the following special FAR event "Audit Culture and Beyond". The seminar will be held on the morning of the inaugural lecture of the FAR Audit Research Chair, Prof. dr. Jere Francis, in Maastricht.

We are organizing this seminar to honor the work Jere Francis has done, and still does, in auditing and to underline how his most recent research agenda on culture and audit quality is again taking issue with important questions society and academics have.

During this event, you will be given the opportunity to listen to three presentations, focusing on audit culture relating to audit quality.

The seminar will take place at the Bonnefanten Museum, Avenue Ceramique 250, 6221 KX Maastricht.

Eddy Cardinaels (1975) is full Professor of accounting at Tilburg University and part-time professor at KU Leuven. His work combines new insights from psychology and behavioral economics to study how different information presentation (ABC, BSC, summaries of earnings releases) can affect decision making of managers within companies. Other experimental work focuses on drivers of honest reporting and social motives in inter-firm negotiations. He also conducts archival work on corporate governance examining how social connections between board members affect financial reporting, how companies use their networks to engage in tax avoidance and factors that drive (excess) compensation.
