The Ian R. Campbell Research Initiative was started by the CICBV in 2004 to foster original and ground breaking research in business and intangible asset valuation, and related topics. The Initiative was named for a CBV who was instrumental in the early development and codification of best practices and theoretical underpinnings of business valuation. Since its inception, the Initiative has annually awarded substantial amounts to academics, students and practitioners to further its research goals. Proposals for the 2018 Research initiative are due by July 31, 2018. For more information on the process, please see [https://cicbv.ca/research-initiatives/], or contact Christine Sawchuk, Director of Education and Accreditation (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
