Join us for the real-life on-the-spot visits! Our approach during this unique event is to take you by the hand and train you to detect irregularities and fraud during the real-life on-the-spot controls. For this, we will get on a bus and visit three real projects, make our observations, write our reports and discuss and analyse these reports. Finally, we will offer you the opportunity to bring your cases, which we will discuss with our expert in full confidentiality.
Irregularities and fraud on project or programme level can lead to withdrawals, repayments and financial corrections. If the lead partner does not succeed in securing repayment of any amount unduly paid as a result of an irregularity or fraud, the member state on whose territory the beneficiary causing the error is located is obliged to reimburse the amount. Therefore, it is crucial for national authorities to implement all measures, aimed at preventing, detecting and combatting irregularities and fraud at any stage of management of ESI Funds.
