8th European Anti-Fraud Seminar: Fraud in EU Funded Projects

Combating Fraud in EU Funded Projects is high on the EU’s Agenda! Is your Institution well prepared for this challenge? Many authorities within the management and control system of EU Funds still face considerable difficulties and uncertainties how to detect and handle (suspected) fraud cases, how to distinguish them from irregularities as well as what are the implications of the necessary actions. Yet, counteracting fraud in EU expenditure, which includes EU funded investments, has currently a top priority in the EU. Therefore, the development of concrete mechanisms and the management of actions with regard to (suspected) fraud detection and handling must not be undervalued by authorities involved in the management and control system of EU Funds. Particular alertness is especially necessary in the field of public procurements which is very prone to fraud. [field_event_link]
