Academic Boost for XBRL in Russia
On Wednesday the Central Bank of Russia and the prestigious Finance University in Moscow marked the endowment of a new Chair in XBRL studies. Aimed at helping develop and expand expertise in the field for finance professionals as well as students, the Finance University will also be carrying out research into structured data and digital reporting.
Launched by First Deputy Governor Dr Ksenia Yudaeva and the Rector of the Financial University, Professor Michael Eskindarov, the initiative will support the broad based program for digitisation of the financial sector within Russia. Some 17,000 non bank financial institutions will start to file in XBRL next year. Read the press release here — in Russian but very readable through your choice of AI translatebot!
