BETKOSOL Kick off Meeting


We would like to invite you to the digital Kick-off Meeting (January 28th 2021) of BETKOSOL (Better Knowledge for better Solutions), a research project under the Hercule III-program. 
The main objective of BETKOSOL is to conduct a comparative analysis is to identify measures that would allow a better implementation of the current legislative framework and of the administrative and criminal procedures to prevent and combat fraud. This will be obtained while looking especially to the social, health and economic sectors, at both the EU and national levels (including regional and local institutions) and showing how legal contexts are changing because of the COVID-19 crisis. New transfers and investments will lead to new procedures and tools.
