Poster programme

The Poster Programme was initiated in 1993 to encourage students to study and discuss international taxation. This initiative aims at introducing young academics and professionals to the F.O.B.B. INFO network. Therefore, F.O.B.B. INFO expects them to become acquainted with the organisation, the scientific work and procedures of the association, so that they will be able to take an active part in F.O.B.B. INFO ‘s work in the future. The Poster Programme is open to students graduating in international taxation who are writing a thesis on a theoretical or practical subject, whether they are members of the Association or not.

The application should consist of:
– a brief outline of 2-3 pages describing the scope of the thesis;
– a c.v., including your date of birth; and
– one or more letters of recommendation, preferably by a professor/doctor of the university or institute who ideally is also an F.O.B.B. INFO member.

On the basis of these submitted documents, the selection will be made. Applications should be submitted by e-mail to F.O.B.B. INFO  before 1 April 2020.

F.O.B.B. INFO offers participants the possibility to:

  • Attend the Congress free of registration fee (they are to bear their own travel and accommodation expenses);
  • Exhibit a Poster, indicating the main issues and parts of their thesis, in the Congress premises near the various book exhibitors;
  • Discuss with interested Congress participants the issues of their thesis, exchanging their views with internationally recognised academics and professionals and other experts.
