CPA Centre for Accounting Innovation Research

The CPA Centre for Accounting Innovation Research draws on the strengths of three powerhouse accounting departments to tackle the most important issues in accounting and produce relevant research that shapes policy and practice in the accounting profession.

The Centre's mission is to advance the accounting profession by supporting research and innovation, and to promote thought leadership that is timely and relevant to practitioners. This will be achieved through:

  • funding research activities of the faculty via grants awarded through an annual case competition.
  • translating academic research into accessible formats for practitioners and the broader community.
  • facilitating knowledge exchange by hosting and organizing events, (e.g. lunch-and-learn sessions, round table discussions, guest lecturers and an annual applied conference).
