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 4 (D4) has just been published, entitled “Final Recommendations” and written by Aldo Sandulli, Maurizio Bellacosa, Alexander De Becker, Maurizia De Bellis, Hilde Caroli Casavola, Cristina Fasone, Marta Simoncini, and Maciej Serowaniec. Doctors Emanuele Birritteri, Valerio Bontempi, Eva Kiel (formerly Rulands), Alessandro Nato, Rossella Sabia and Elisabetta Tatì.
The D4 is organized into five parts. One for the European level and four for each country: Belgium, Germany, Italy and Poland.
The recommendations relate to different areas:
– Policy implications and recommendations following an analysis of the promotion of institutional coordination in particular, in an effort to simplify the system;
– Policy implications and recommendations following an analysis of the coordination between prevention (administrative) and prosecution (administrative-criminal), especially when the funds at stake are subject to time constraints and it is imperative to establish as soon as possible all the necessary controls from the initial to the final stages;
– Policy implications and recommendations following an analysis of the need to coordinate general-purpose and sectorial institutions deputed to exercise control through regulation (institutional coordination through functional coordination);
– Policy implications and recommendations following an analysis of technological innovation and data interoperability.
– Policy implications and recommendations following an analysis of general principles and the protection of EU financial interests (transparency, participation, good administration, etc.).
