The Winter School was an intensive programme designed for professionals looking to consolidate their experience and enlarge their competences on curbing corruption, with particular attention to the misuse of European funds. Interdisciplinary in nature, it addressed trends and practices on the international anti-corruption arena and promoted culture of prevention. The Winter School aimed to provide training on the administrative enforcement actions, the sharing of good practices and the development of regional networks of experts and public officials.

Mr Vladan Joksimovic, Head of RAI Secretariat, used this opportunity to share good practices for development of anti-corruption policies as well as the ongoing projects and objectives of RAI.

According to Mr Enrico Carloni, Director of the Winter School, this experience represented an useful training/debating path among experts and officers involved in managing anti-corruption policies – it also promoted positive network of professionals and competences. Furthermore, he stated that synergies with project partners RAI and ANAC were really positive and that they are determined to develop these partnerships in the future.

Prevention, public procurement, public ethics, transparency were some of the issues addressed by the speakers during the Course.
