Ahead of the event, the IPSASB is pleased to offer research grants of USD 1,500 for research under each of the following topics:

- Discount Rates in the Public Sector: Rationale for their Use and Determination; and
- Disclosures of Tax Expenditures.
The first IPSASB Research Forum was on 17 September 2019 in Naples, Italy. With more than 80 participants from academia and standard-setting bodies, the Research Forum discussed linkages between academia and the standard-setting process and current and committed projects on the IPSASB’s work program. The 2nd Research Forum aims to take forward the dialogue established between academia and the IPSASB.
The grants will be awarded by an academic advisory committee comprising representatives from IPSASB and the academic community, based on abstracts. Please email your abstract to VanessaMello@ifac.org by 31 December 2019 for consideration.
