The training programme involves intensive workshops in research methods and research management and supervised training through research. The training comprises:
(i) research design for cross-national studies,
(ii) the co-ordination and networking of large data sets of corporate financial information

(iv)political and legal analysis of enforcement policies and compliance strategies

The training programme will also contribute to the development of three existing research centres in less-favored regions (Greece, Ireland and Portugal) and a research centre in an associated state (Poland) by transferring expertise from four leading research centres in the EU, with research interests in accounting, finance, audit and management: the International Centre for Research in Accounting (Lancaster), the Centre for Financial Studies (Frankfurt), the Maastricht Accounting and Auditing Research Centre and the Instituto Universitario de Administracion de Empresas (Madrid).
