November 15, 2013

Pgm2014 2020: Yes

Text:

Corruption and fraud in general and in the specific context of the management of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) receive increasing public and political attention. With the new generation of ESIF programmes to be adopted at the beginning of 2014, the Conference comes at a perfect time: the authorities in charge of the programmes are being asked to put more emphasis and resources on effective and proportionate anti-fraud measures taking into account the risks identified.

The objective of the Conference is to showcase some tools and instruments which can help to raise awareness and identify fraud and corruption related risks. It will also address good practice examples which can be used for mitigating fraud and corruption linked to the management of the funds.
