EAA Bergen

From 11 to 13 May 2022, the 44th Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association (EAA) took place in Bergen, Norway. Anne Schneider and Maria Gebhardt used this opportunity to present their research paper “Effects of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (EU/2019/2088) on Institutional Investors  – Evidence from an Online Survey”. After a fruitful discussion, they were able to gather fresh ideas for developing their paper and start new research projects.

Additionally, they were able to attend several presentations given by researchers from all over the world, bringing them up to date with the latest developments in the world of accounting research. Through this, the two were able to form many interesting connections in the field of international accounting. Besides a classic gala dinner with a Norwegian live band, a boat trip through the fjords of Bergen was organized by the EAA. So, Anne and Maria could also get to know the Norwegian nature and culture. All in all, this experience was inspiring in many ways.
