Accounting Fund sponsor of Foundation for Auditing Research

The Dutch Accounting Fund and the Foundation for Auditing Research (FAR) have announced an agreement, in which the Accounting Fund serves as sponsor of FAR for a period of five years. The relationship consists of a donation of EUR 100,000 per year during that time, with a mid-term evaluation.

Jos van Huut, chair of the Accounting Fund, says: “We are delighted that we can contribute to scientific and practical research for the accounting profession as a whole: for public auditors as well as accountants in business and auditors working in the public sector. And for both large and smaller audit firms. The objectives of our Accounting Fund meet with those of FAR in this respect.”

Olof Bik and Jan Bouwens, managing directors of FAR, on the new sponsorship: “With the contribution of the Accounting Fund, we embed the broad accounting profession in our research agenda. This agenda covers the entire financial reporting and assurance supply chain. The collaboration between auditors and accountants in business is also one of the themes for the upcoming international FAR conference, which is held on 9 and 10 May”.
