BETKOSOL (Better Knowledge for Better Solutions) European Project: Deliverable 5

Under the scientific responsibility of Prof. Aldo Sandulli, the Hercule III BETKOSOL (Better Knowledge for Better Solutions) project, funded by the European Commission (Grant Agreement Number 101015421) and based at LUISS Guido Carli, aims to investigate the limits and perspectives improving the current regulatory framework to combat fraud affecting the financial interests of the EU. In particular, the sectors taken into consideration are those of social, health and economy. The research also takes into account how the Covid-19 crisis is affecting the status quo on the matter.

Deliverable 5 has just been published, entitled “The protection of the EU financial interest in contemporary age: insights from National and European institutions” and written by Aldo Sandulli, Elisabetta Tatì, Alessandro Nato, Valerio Bontempi, Maciej Serowaniec, Eva Rulands, Rossella Sabia, and Emanuele Birritteri.

From September 1, 2021, to November 30, 2021, the BETKOSOL team administered online questionnaires to students and conducted qualitative interviews, during online and physical sessions with EU and MS institutions at national, regional, and local level in four different countries. The BETKOSOL team has administered the questionnaires as well as to selected trade unions and employers’ associations in Italy, Poland, Belgium, and Germany.

The Deliverable 5 is focused on the comparison of the results of qualitative interviews conducted at the European institutions level and those at the national and civil society levels.
