Heading out this week to Europe (and just in case it does not consider itself part of Europe any more, the United Kingdom). Visiting the University of Bristol, working on some research with a co-author, being part of the faculty at the EARNet (European Audit Research network) doctoral consortium, and presenting my research there. It is a heavy trip, no a boondoogle. Two presentations, four discussions, an editors panel and a round table plus my own research. So while it might sound glamorous there is real work involved in preparing and while on site.
However, it will be great to get back to Leuven which I consider one of the best kept secrets in accounting research in the world. A world class faculty in auditing and management accounting with some excellent doctoral students. Looking forward to KU Leuven again.
