Irregularities and fraud in EU funds – training

February, 28, 2013

Concordis.eu has concluded the practical training seminar devoted to fraud and irregularity  management in EU programmes and projects.

From 26 to 27 February forty-two EU fund implementation professionals from sixteen countries shared and exchanged opinions, experience and ideas on possibilities for improvement of fraud and irregularity management in EU funds.

Participants learned best practices from professionals working in the field of fraud and irregularity management. Full cycle of fraud and irregularity management was covered during the event – starting from planning the strategy, developing detection tools, reporting, assessing the impact of fraud and irregularities as well as how to reinforce management and control systems. Significant part of the event was various case studies or fraud and irregularities in ESF and ERDF, as well as how cooperation with private sector can be used when combating fraud and irregularities.

Mr Robert Browell (Training Director of UK Chapter of Association of Certified Fraud Examiners) noted: “the event was very well organized and the participants learned not only from the speakers, but also from each other”.

We are very happy with active involvement of participants and fruitful discussions during the event, as it lead us to some great insights and ideas on mechanisms that various EU countries have developed to deal with fraud and irregularities in EU funded projects and programmes.
