A key element

Andy Lymer, Lynne Oats and Simon James take a look at the opportunities presented by academic conferences in tax 

Academic conferences are a key element of the research creation process. They are often the source of new research ideas as well as the place ideas in formation are explored with others and where the outcomes of research endeavors are shared. The balance of the focus across these three areas differs from event to event and getting the most from participation in them requires understanding the different nature of these events – whether they are idea forming focused or more orientated to results presentation.
