We will host and co-host various events for the scientific community, but also for policy makers, firms and anyone who is interested in our research. 

TRR 266 1. FORUM
FORSCHUNG IM DIALOG: Rechnungswesen, Steuern & Transparenz
30 March, 10:00-17:00

Rechnungswesen, Steuern und Transparenz: In Ihrem Arbeitsfeld beobachten Sie täglich, wie neue Gesetze und Regulierungen die Anforderungen an Unternehmen verändern. Doch wie wirken neue Offenlegungspflichten auf unternehmerisches Verhalten zurück? Wann ist steuerliche Komplexität problematisch? Inwiefern berücksichtigen Regulierer auch ungewünschte Effekte?

Diskutieren Sie mit uns über Berichterstattung, Besteuerung, Controlling und Unternehmenstransparenz, über Herausforderungen und Lösungswege. Wir freuen uns auf Ihren wertvollen Input!

28-29 November 2019

Each year we will organize a 2-3 day TRR 266 Conference to present work and exchange ideas. The conference is intended to provide an arena for the ongoing research, thereby allowing for cross-pollination between research projects, and the strengthening of the academic network.

The first edition in 2019 was restricted to TRR 266 researchers only, in subsequent years parts of the Annual Conference will also be open to the scientific community.
