As from 1 November 2016 I am employed 3.5 days a week as Professor of Practice in International Political Economy at City, University of London. I am principally engaged by them to undertake research on the European tax gap, country-by-country reporting, BEPS implementation and related issues as part of a multi-university Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Union.
Note that they’re not actually putting him in front of the students.
City, University of London is now close to concluding another grant agreement with the European Research Council for another grant looking at the impact of tax on corporate structuring. If this process is concluded as expected by the end of the year it is anticipated that I will become a full time employee of the university and my other funding would then cease as all the projects I am currently engaged on would either then be covered by my employment or will continue voluntarily and unfunded, as this blog has always been.
That last line doesn’t sound right really, does it? For I do seem to recall from the accounts for one year or another that he said the funding was largely to do with producing the blog. Or have I misrecalled? Anyone got the chapter and verse on that?
