Research Visit to Tasmania - Day 1

The director of Accounting Research Institute (ARI), Prof Dr Normah Omar has been invited by the University of Tasmania (UTAS) for a four-day research visit to Australia.
The visit has been arranged by ARI collaborator at UTAS, Professor Roger Willett from the School of Accounting & Corporate Governance. The main aims of the research visit are (i) to identify possible research projects that both entities could embark in for the years 2012 & 2013; (ii) to identify and match researchers from both institutions who could participate in the research projects; (iii) to develop research proposals in identified research areas & to submit them to international research funders and (iv) to identify other aspects of collaborations - e.g. joint publication, training and staff exchange. In fact in November 2011, both entities have signed a letter of intent, which needs to be formalized into a memorandum of understanding (MOU). On the first day of her visit, Professor Dr Normah Omar met up with Professor Roger Willett and Professor Peter Carrol(in blue shirt) to discuss collaborative research topics. Several research topics have been identified and the details will be further deliberated within the next few days....
