Professor of Accounting Lasse Niemi has been appointed as the General Secretary of the European Auditing Research Network EARNet. This network was founded in 2000 to further enhance the quality of European auditing research by combining research efforts and co-ordinating research activities, and to realise synergies provided by the variety within the European research community.

‘Naturally I feel that it is a great honour to be nominated to this position, and I will do my best to advance and promote European auditing research’, Professor Niemi says.
