Dr Janice Denoncourt, Senior Lecturer at Nottingham Law School and member of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law, was recently invited to present at a workshop hosted by the University of Aix-Marseilles, held in Aix-en-Provence on 7-8 July 2016. The event, on the theme of Managing Innovation in Accountancy, was held under the auspices of the University's Chair in Innovation and Patents and focused on the treatment of intellectual property as a business asset. The well-attended workshop featured contributions from academics, accounting experts and lawyers working in the field.

Janice's contribution, which stemmed from her recently completed doctoral work, was on the topic of True and Fair Intellectual Property Information: A Corporate Governance Issue. The paper, which has also been published in the Journal of Business Law, dealt with the difficulties small and medium enterprises face in securing financing because the application of international accounting standards, and the exemption under company law reporting requirements, can lead to the potential under-reporting of the value of intellectual property assets. Janice's paper suggested improving the adequacy of information through targeted recommendations for a new corporate disclosure model.
