Ignace De Beelde has been elected to the Board of the European Accounting Association as the National Representative for Belgium.
The European Accounting Association (EAA) aims to link together the Europe-wide community of accounting scholars and researchers, to provide a platform for the wider dissemination of European accounting research. Besides fostering PhD students and junior researchers, another objective is to improve research in order to ensure the development and the promotion of accounting as well as the improvement of the teaching skills.
Since its establishment in 1977, the EAA has had a major impact on the accounting research community throughout Europe. The EAA has established a secure and developing series of networks that bring together all accounting researchers interested in a wider European concept of their subject and research interests.
