Management Accountingin Europe.

The Research Foundation of CIMA invites proposals for research into management accounting issues in a European context. Possible research topics could include: Descriptions, analyses and explanations of differences in the theory and practice of management accounting found in different European countries; variation in the management accounting profession throughout Europe; assessing the processes of intra-European assimilation and diffusion of management accounting practices and innovations; the degree of articulation and integration of management accounting systems in European joint ventures, take-overs and mergers; practice and problems in pan-European benchmarking exercises. Proposals that include, or have access to, management accounting expertise, are particularly welcome. CIMA also welcomes applications from researchers outside the UK or research teams that include non-UK researchers. However, the research should have a European dimension. The maximum funding for any individual project is Pounds 40,000. Application forms can be obtained from Kelly Bint, administrator, on 020 7917 9220.
