Current research and networking opportunities at FairTax conference in Brno

NEWS On March 9-10, 2017, the FairTax project hosted a special session, “Fair and Sustainable Taxation“ at the conference Enterprise and Competitive Environment 2017 held by the Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE) at Mendel University in Brno.

Keynote Giorgia Maffini (Deputy Head of the Tax Policy and Statistics Division Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, OECD)

The special session was organised by Danuše Nerudová and her research group at the Department of Accounting and Taxes, Mendel University in Brno and by Margit Schratzenstaller from the Austrian Institute of Economic Research WIFO Vienna (Austria). Around 50 participants attended the special session.

One important result of the session was that it faciliated a successful meeting between the FairTax project and the Coffers project. COFFERS (Combating Fiscal Fraud and Empowering Regulators) is a H2020 funded project which focuses on tax regulation and its impact (for more info, go to the Coffers project website: Researchers from COFFERS presented their current research at the session, and that illuminated possible connections between the two projects.
