Prof. Lisa Jack, University of Portsmouth, and

Prof. Ian Thomson, University of Birmingham

Time: 13.00-14.30 (Plenary Session); 14.30-15.00 (AGM)

The plenary will focus on issues surrounding research funding and impact. Specifically, opportunities and limitations of conducting interdisciplinary research in accounting and finance which is funded by external organisations. Our aim is to share experiences amongst academics, across all career levels, and learn and develop knowledge in this area. The plenary session will be followed by a (non-compulsory) IPSIG’s Annual General Meeting.
