On October 10 2019, within the European Week of Regions and Cities, took place the workshop “Civil society helping to bring ESIF closer to citizens”. In the foreground of the event was the project Integrity Pacts - civilian control mechanisms for safeguarding EU funds. The workshop was moderated by our colleague, Irina Lonean, Transparency International Romania’s project coordinator.
Speakers included representatives of Managing Authority of the Region of Attica (Greece), Slovenian Ministry of Health, Transparency International Slovenia and National Agency for Cadastre and Land Registration – ANCPI (Romania).
The workshop created a proper framework for participants’ interactions, for the exchange of good practices obtained during the project implementation. The activity was also attended by representatives from the other countries that develop the Integrity Pacts project and who presented their perspectives and experiences on the proposed topics.
The project Integrity Pacts - civilian control mechanisms for safeguarding EU funds aims to help reduce the corruption risks in public procurement by implementing a mechanism of civilian control in the projects financed by European funds. The project is coordinated by Transparency International Secretariat and is implemented in 11 EU countries, in partnership with civil society organizations.
